Lovers of the Night
  • Year2017
  • Duration57 min

Anna Frances Ewert’s contemplative portrait of a monastery and small farm in rural Ireland spotlights seven elderly monks, who reflect on faith, aging and the challenges they face with frankness and humour. Punctuated by atmospheric footage of the surrounding countryside, the film captures sacred rituals and the Fathers’ everyday pleasures, notably following the fortunes of Munster’s provincial rugby team.
