PRESENT TIME: journal of a country monastery

John Slattery
John Slattery, Leah Simon-Weisberg
four monks walk outside of a white monastery covered in snow. Mountains break the horizon in the distance.

PRESENT TIME is a poetic historical portrait of a monastery, representing 15 years and told over five seasons.
Woven into these seasons is an intimate, observed chronicle of the everyday lives of monks.
