Seven elderly Cistercians in Kildare open their doors and their hearts to a young German-Irish filmmaker. 88-year-old Alberic, a passionate Munster rugby fan with a fine sense of humour, weaves together their stories, reflecting on faith and revealing the vulnerability of old age. This accomplished first film captures moments of profundity, joy and affection in the monks’ daily devotion to God and to each other.
Screening with Silent Order, George Fleischmann’s 1948 film of Cistercians in Roscrea.
Kindly supported by the Goethe-Institut Irland.
