alt "Harrowing and ultimately moving, 'Meru' charts the efforts of three of the world's best mountain climbers to conquer an 'impossible' Himalayan peak [Shark's Fin] that has never been successfully scaled before."
-- Dennis Harvey, Variety

Documentary; In English; 87 min.

"It's not only the near-fatal mishaps and knife-edged escapes that ultimately make 'Meru' so compelling. Assisted by essential commentary from the author Jon Krakauer, the directors poke at the psychology of extremity, zeroing in on push-the-limits personalities for whom calculating risk is a way of life."

alt An extraordinary cinematic exploration of eternity, time, silence, beauty, the present moment, and sound. Shot entirely on location with available light and barely two minutes of dialogue in one of the most ascetic monasteries in Roman Catholicism, the Grande Chartreuse in the French Alps, it traces the daily lives of monks who have committed to living a solitary life in a two-story cell where they work, pray, eat, and sleep on a straw bed, leaving only three times in every twenty-four hours to go to the chapel.
A rare glimpse of monastic life and a welcomed relief from our hectic, media-saturated lives.

Presented in partnership with Third Angle New Music's Frozen Music III: light and music in Aalto's library. Seating is limited, advance tickets are recommended.

Documentary; In French & Latin with English subtitles; 169 min.
