Communion Wafers: The Fine Art of Faith and Breadmaking

"The Order of the Brothers of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel, or simply Carmelites, is a Roman Catholic religious order that dates back to the 12th century. Founded by hermit monks at Mount Carmel in modern Israel, the order then spread to Europe, and subsequently around the world. Part of a video series on the intersection of food and spirituality by the Italian-born, London-based filmmaker Matan Rochlitz, this short documentary provides a rare look inside a Carmelite monastery in the UK. There, monks and nuns live a simple life centred on worship, and earn a living by producing roughly half a million communion wafers a month. At just two minutes, the film offers both a glimpse at a singularly spiritual craft and a brief meditation on the psychology of religious devotion.
