Merton: A Film Biography

DIRECTED BY - Paul Wilkes, Audrey L. Glynn

Thomas Merton, the 20th-century religious philosopher and mystic, is one of the most well-known spiritualists of our time and author of more than sixty books, including "The Seven Storey Mountain," his widely read autobiography. Merton was a Trappist monk for some twenty-seven years and led an ascetic life. This film portrait visits the places where Merton lived, excerpts passages from his writings, and features interviews with those who knew him, such as the Dalai Lama, Beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and singer/songwriter Joan Baez.
