Life in Hidden Light is a short documentary film created by Miranda Tasker and Marcus Nield. The film depicts a secluded group of nuns and their life inside an enclosed Carmelite monastery.
The Carmelite community is usually off limits for outsiders – other than visitors of law, medical or other religious purposes. Yet today, for the first time in 90 years, the monastery opens their doors to be filmed and showed to the outside.
Through interviews and video footage, the documentary seeks to understand how life is lived inside the religious community, and why each person in the monastery took this choice of living.
The Discalced Carmelites of Wolverhampton, UK, is a convent for women only. So how do they live their lives? Let’s find out.
