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.
