In 530 A.D., the Rule of Saint Benedict was written as a basic “common sense” guide to foster community in a monastery.
THE RULE documentary captures how Newark Abbey, in the heart of one of America's most impoverished and violent cities, Newark, NJ, applies the precepts of this nearly 1500 year old handbook to its school, St. Benedict’s Prep. The Benedictine monks instill a sense of community in the most vulnerable student body: inner-city teenage males - who then go on to achieve amazing educational success.
* There will be no screening Saturday, February 21st.
