Title: SOUL SEARCHING: THE JOURNEY OF THOMAS MERTON
Here is the documentary that goes to the heart of Merton's spiritual journey. Award-winning producer Morgan Atkinson spent years researching Merton's work, as well as interviewing Merton friends, scholars and authorities on the spiritual life. Atkinson's cameras reveal life at the Abbey of Gethsemani, Merton's home for 27 years, as well as Merton's path in New York City, Redwoods Monastery (California) and Christ in the Desert Monastery (New Mexico). The picture that emerges from Atkinson's study provides provocative insights into the interior landscape of one of the spiritual giants of modern times while capturing the haunting physical beauty of the geography that both nurtured and shaped Merton. A book by the same title is also available. 67 minutes
