    The trailer for Into Great Silence which will make its Premiere at the 2010 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. Into Great Silence is the first film ever made chronicling life inside the Grande Chartreuse, nestled deep in the stunning French Alps. Founded in 1084, it is considered one of the world-s most ascetic monasteries and home to the Catholic Church-s strictest order. Here the monks dedicate themselves entirely to the service of God and to spiritual life-in permanent silence. One of the most mesmerizing and poetic chronicles of spirituality ever created, this film is a rare, transformative experience for all.moreless

    Director Philip Gröning's study of the Grande Chartreuse monastery introduces a world of austere beauty as it follows the daily activities of the resident monks, whose silence is broken only by prayer and song. With no sound save the natural rhythms of age-old routines, the documentary -- a Special Jury Prize winner at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival -- captures the simplicity and profundity of lives lived with absolute purpose and presence.moreless
