ABOUT THE FILM Zen And The West
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? Is Zen a Religion?
How does Science view Zen?
What is Awakening or Enlightenment?
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.

Where can I see this film? Looks wonderful.
Glad you liked the trailer Diana.
The film is very good.
We are working on the general public streaming distribution in parallel with the film festivals (the next in is in Tel Aviv Nov 7th & 9th) and current best guess estimate for streaming availability is sometime next year (on our site and possibly other platforms like Amazon and Netflix).
Will be updating this page more over next few weeks and add a News TAB to include updates etc … so stay tuned.
Thanks again for dropping by.
Have a great Sunday!
