Lovers of the Night and The Silent Order

View Upcoming Films

Streaming now through January 5

While the year 2020 draws to a close, Anna Frances Ewert’s genial Lovers of the Night details the daily lives and viewpoints, values, and hopes of seven engaging Trappist monks living in a monastery in rural Kildare, Ireland. Her film is accompanied by The Silent Order, a short from seventy years earlier about a different group of cloistered monastics in County Tipperary.
