Into the Field

Into the Field follows the everyday "secular" lives of nuns in a Romanian Orthodox monastery. Documenting the nuns' activities, relationships and roles within their community, the film also incorporates sequences of stop-motion animation to depict some of the anthropologist's own challenges of working in the field.
