A Desert in the Heart of the World

Fri 18 Aug

The Edinburgh Festival of the Sacred Arts is delighted to add film to its programme for the first time. The Desert in the Heart of the World is a cinematic study of the impact of the Carthusian monastic movement on the French landscape. In this short work, director Nadège Druzkowski combines superb visuals with natural sounds to make a compelling extended image of a sacred space. The film will be screened twice in the intimate surroundings of St Vincent’s Chapel Undercroft.
