English, and English subtitles
Followed by a Q & A with director Luke Fitch.
Follow along as we travel to Canada, Japan, The Philippines, Europe and the U.S.A., visiting Zen Masters, scientists, politicians, Christians, atheists, and celebrities exploring the questions:
What is Zen? What is Awakening/Enlightenment?
Is Zen a Religion? How does Science view Zen?
What does Awakening look like in everyday life?
This feature documentary looks at these questions in the context of a social landscape marked by separation and divisive rhetoric.
