1966 - live of Carmelite nuns in French cloister

Video recorded visit to a Carmelite convent,1966, where for the first time a report is made on the activities of these religious, totally cut off from the outside world ... filmed their lives since rising at 5:40 until bedtime at 10:30pm,- meals, prayer, processions in the corridors and hours of joyful, even musical relaxation. 1966 back when they had no heat,and still chanted in Latin. Notice the Priest celebrating in French, facing the 'congregation' side, and the Novus Ordo, less than one year after the closing of Vatican II and 3 years before the official promulgation of the New Ordinary reformed Mass of Pope Paul VI.
