A L'Abri Documentary

produced by Art Within

Hello there! We are The Coleys, and we're both filmmakers and co-creative directors of a faith & arts nonprofit called Art Within.


The first step? We're raising funds to make a feature-length documentary in partnership with Art Within that will explore the hospitality & spirituality of an organization called L’Abri Fellowship, a worldwide network of Christian "monastery hostels" dedicated to providing space for an honest exploration of community and what it means to be human.

This past summer, we completed our filming at English L'Abri - and now we're moving toward some additional shooting and post-production with an original musical score.


On this page, you'll see our "proof of concept" film as well as a featurette explaining our motivation for making this doc. And if you’d like to support the film, you can donate to the project by clicking here or send a check to Art Within Inc. at the address below.
