On the Road with Thich Nhat Hanh

A feature-length documentary about monks and nuns on tour with their Teacher, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh

On the road with Thich Nhat Hanh (working title) from Max Pugh on Vimeo.

This unique feature-length documentary will share the real life of the monastics in the Plum Village Tradition: their life as young people with aspirations, hopes and dreams, their trials and challenges along with their joys and happiness in the practice and their daily coming and goings whilst touring with their teacher. It will depict the true life of a monk or a nun, sharing their moments of peace and calm as well as their disappointments and tensions while traveling as a community of 50 or 60 monastic brother and sisters. In doing so, it will reveal a unique form of monastic training that has developed and evolved from an ancient tradition of sharing the Dharma, using many modern means. The film will also reveal the human side of these monks and nuns--real people who can and do practice with every aspect of their human existence and not just as solemn recluses.
