Amongst White Clouds

Another video. This one is a documentary about hermit monks and nuns iving in the remote mountains of central China. The scenery is stunning and it has a wonderful stillness to it. It's great to see that this ancient tradition continues to survive.


  1. I watched this one last week. Just a fantastic video all around. Very inspirational and moving for me.

  2. An excellent movie, by a filmmaker who brings rare authority. How rare to see a Westerner invest the time and effort actually to become fluent in another language; fluent enough to study under these hermits and make a movie about them!

    The hermits, men and women of various ages, are depicted as individuals with personalities and pasts, and their practice as worthwhile.

    A really fine document.
