Relief de France, Les Monastères
The Carthusian Order is a contemplative, semi-eremitic religious order founded in 1084 by St. Bruno. It takes its name from the Chartreuse massif (Isère, France) where they settled.
« Relief de France, Les Monastères » is a series of documentaries made in monasteries, for more than 35 years, by the association Ciné Art Loisir.
All these cinematographic documents were constructed in close collaboration with the superiors of each monastery, in keeping with the distinctive note of each Order.
