Tim Cawkwell's Cinema
Filming the cloisters
The last few years have seen a triad of documentaries made in monasteries or nunneries with notable results:
- 2005: Tacita Dean's Presentation Sisters
- 2006: Philip Groning's Die Grosse Stille/Into Great Silence
- 2009: Michael Whyte's No Greater Love
For some reflections on this development, upload a pdf here.
For a longer essay on the magnificent Into Great Silence, upload a pdf here.
My NEW FILMGOER'S GUIDE TO GOD features this material as well.
