full documentary!!!/ wonderful (only downside of the film for me is that a few of the monks that i know personally where not there because they were away at studies in Rome, Usa, and Austria). ,
-The documentary, filmed in the late summer of 2011, takes you into the life of the Benedictine monks (made up of Americans/ Brits/ and Asians, Italians) of Norcia. In the Jubilee year 2000 the monks of Norcia breathed new life into the birthplace of St Benedict. Armed with only their faith and zeal they founded a monastic community which has been attracting men from all over the world to follow St. Benedict's ancient Rule. Many of their friends have long wanted an insight into the inner workings of their life and so they have produced this high quality up to date film which shows the monks as they go through the daily ora et labora. The title of the film, "Quaerere Deum", means to Seek God. This is the true calling of all monks, the first and most essential quality of an authentic monastic vocation, as laid out in the Rule of our Holy Father St. Benedict.
