Speakit’s most notable films to date include the award-winning Sundance hit Black Gold, which won worldwide critical acclaim and When China Met Africa  a multi-broadcast project involving BBC StoryvilleArte France, and the Sundance Institute.

Through the provision of completion funds, sankalpa enabled Speakit Films to; produce Walk With Me to the highest industry standards, secure world wide distribution and build a large movement behind the film and its core message of mindfulness and peace.

"Our hope is that Walk With Me is seen in cinemas, online and on broadcast networks by hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world — and creates a lasting impact for those who see it."
Marc J. Francis, director of SpeakIt Films

Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, the film is a cinematic journey into the world of mindfulness and the Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh. Filmed over three years and with unprecedented access, this visceral film is a meditation on a community who have given up all their possessions for a monastic life in rural France.

Speak It Walk With Me4

Cooling to the mind and soothing to the spirit, the documentary Walk With Me offers a tiny oasis of relief to anyone overheated by current events. When you feel like freaking out, the movie’s commitment to slowing down and drawing inward doesn’t seem like such a bad idea.
