In 1984 filmmaker Philip Groning wrote to the Order of Carthusian Monks asking for permission to make a documentary about them. Sixteen years later they were ready. Filmed over six months with unprecedented access to the incredible Grand Chartreuse monastery in the French Alps, Groning has crafted a mesmerizingly poetic chronicle of monastic life - filming the monks as they go about their daily prayers, rituals and tasks. A uniquely transcendent experience of a world apart.
