About the film: Amongst White Clouds is a look at the lives of students, ascetics and masters living in isolated hermitages dotting the peaks and valleys of China's Zhongnan Mountain range. Director Edward Burger takes us on an unforgettable journey into this forgotten 5000 year old Zen Buddhist hermit tradition. It was widely thought that these hermitages had been wiped out by the twists and turns of history. This film shows us this is not the case. This documentary reveals to us the tradition, wisdom, hardship and joy of everyday life in these remote practice centers. With both humor and compassion, the inspiring and warm-hearted characters in the film challenge us to join them in an exploration of practice.

    I have seen this movie and I thought it was captivating, worth seeing if you want to experience great visuals of China's mountains and see some extraordinary buddhists living in the wilderness.
