Souls of Zen

The Japanese population’s reaction to the catastrophe of March 2011 has been described as “stoic” by the Western media. The Japanese code of conduct is indeed deeply rooted in their Buddhist traditions, and young filmmakers Tim Graf and Jakob Montrasio observe in detail what this means for the people and their religion. At graveyards, in temples, at monasteries and with families, they question the impact this triple affliction has had on the lives and beliefs of the inhabitants. How deeply do their beliefs affect their grieving? What role do the monks play in assisting people with their grief? And, what effects has this enormous catastrophe had on their religious rituals? SOULS OF ZEN inserts the events of March 2011 into the context of traditional Zen Buddhism, examining Japan’s religiousness and the beliefs of those practising it at a crucial turning point.

The Way of the Spur

Once upon a time in the east, during a hot summer like there is only one in a decade, a cowboy came to Shanghai. This was no ordinary cowboy, even though he was the common quiet and lonely type. He did not only grow up on a farm, he spend as much time herding his skills in a dojo as he spend herding his fathers cattle. And he came to Shanghai because his sister had gone missing. Upon setting his spur on Chinese ground, he swore to himself that he was not going back home to Italy without her.
