With unprecedented access, ‘Walk With Me’ takes us deep inside the world-famous monastery of Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh, and captures the life of a monastic community who have given up all their possessions for one common purpose – to practice the art of mindfulness.
Filmed over three years, this visceral film is a meditation on a community determined to develop a deep sense of presence, not just for themselves but for all those they love.
As the seasons come and go, the monastics’ inner journey is amplified by insights from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.
Quiet Earth’s events always sell out. Booking is advisable and it would also help if you could do so in person or online before Friday 30 Marchso Rachel knows how many to cater for. Thank you.
Spaceheads is a duo that graft the sound of technology. They generate a fusion of jazz, funk, dance, electro and indie to create an inimitable sound of their own.
Andy Diagram has played trumpet through loopers and effects with various bands from the bright leftfield pop indie heroes ‘James’ to the darker abstract sounds of Pere Ubu’s David Thomas. He has taken the sound of the trumpet into the heart of alternative music (recently integrated a mobile phone to transform a single horn into the full sound of widescreen cinematic brass!) Richard Harrison‘s unusual drum beats and percussive trickery utilses tin cans, bottles, sheets of metal and a pair of squeaky toy pigs.
This performance follows hot on the heels of the release of their new 13-track ‘A New World In Our Hearts’ from their 13th album, which is inspired by peoples’ struggle for a better world.
The Spaceheads’ experience is accompanied by Rucksack Cinema with live mixing of video images. Enjoy b&w films of steam trains, 1920s space films, clips from classic movies combined with images of the universe, spinning stars and psychedelic swirls from floor to ceiling…
Welsh anarcho punx, Mwstard hail from Pembrokeshire and are supporting Spaceheads at the next TRANSIT. Describing themselves as “DIY Pre-post punk kift disco band” they have new material to share with their fans. This will be your only chance of seeing them and their funky projections in West Wales this year – so don’t miss it!

Man with a Pram (58 mins)
Father, daughter Dana (2 year old in a pram) and an English assistant Georgia, set off walking 750 kms from one of the most deprived areas of England (Moss Side) to one of the richest (Buckingham Palace, London). Travelling has always been a way for Mikael to look for, and understand the meaning of life. He tries to understand why Brexit happened and why foodbanks are growing fast. Whilst visiting one of the most expensive private schools in the world, he wonders why many don’t have enough food for the day
Man With a Camel, Expedition Yemen, 126 Degrees in the Shade (58 mins)
“You´ll die. Or get kidnapped by Al Qaeda. What you want to do is impossible!”
Together with Swedish journalist Tanya Holm, Kensington the Camel and the Bedus (a few of the oldest inhabitants of Arabia) Mikael travels through one of the hottest deserts on earth. They didn’t meet any terrorists, religious extremists and nobody got killed. They didn’t even feel any serious fear. What they found during this adventurous walk in their search of the real Arabia, was a Middle Eastern country very different from the one portrayed in the global media.
Doors and bar open 6.30pm
