A new documentary on Catholic religious life, filmed in some of Spain’s most beautiful and historic monasteries, will be shown in movie theaters across the U.S. for a one-night release on Nov. 2.
“Free” is a Spanish documentary filmed across 12 monasteries that provides an intimate portrait of the beauty of contemplative life hidden in cloistered convents and monasteries.
In the film, Carmelites, Trappists, Benedictines, and Cistercians share their wisdom on some of life’s biggest questions from their life’s calling to finding joy in suffering.
The film, directed by Santos Blanco, takes the viewer inside 1,000-year-old monasteries across Spain from Salamanca to La Rioja.
