Outside the city, the monks of Mt St Bernard Abbey, a community of 25 men, more than half of them over 80 years old, are opening the first Trappist brewery in the UK. For their historic, counter
cultural lifestyle to survive, the venture must succeed. As the monks reflect on spirituality, ageing and the end of life, the number of burials in the Abbey graveyard continue to grow.

Director Nick Hamer spent a year with the monks, gaining privileged access to document their hidden lives. They have turned their backs on the material, consumer society, to focus instead on
contemplative spirituality, and to maintain an age-old religious tradition.

An absorbing documentary about a cloistered community, men who have given up everything in pursuit of an ideal.

Arts & Biscuits: A film, a cuppa and a biscuit for just £6 every Friday morning.

The main feature will commence 15 minutes after the advertised screening time.
