Zen for Nothing (Werner Penzel, 2016)

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


This portrait of a Japanese Zen monastery follows a novice as she arrives and begins to navigate the new rules and rituals that will govern her life there: how to bow, sit in the meditation hall, and carry out movements with chopsticks. But there’s more than just meditation, farming, and maintenance—there are picnics, music, and Wi-Fi as well. Blissfully simple and beautifully filmed, Zen for Nothing also features an eclectic and elegant score by Fred Frith. (100 mins., DCP)
