Desert Silence

Filmed in the high desert of New Mexico, videographer Jonathan Joiner met up with his friend Dane Johnson at an Orthodox Christian monastery after Dane had been fully immersed in their community for two months.
As a part of his graduate program, Dane was researching and writing about spirituality through the lens of monastics. What he found were not clear-cut answers, but new questions to ask; ones that introduced him to a new mode of existence.
