Amongst white clouds
American director Edward A. Burger takes us on his unforgettable journey
into the hidden lives of China’s forgotten Zen Buddhist hermit tradition.
“Amongst White Clouds is a look at the lives of zealot students,
gaunt ascetics and wise masters living in isolated hermitages
dotting the peaks and valleys of China’s Zhongnan Mountain range.”
The Zhongnan Mountains have been home to recluses
since the time of the Yellow Emperor, some five thousand years ago.
Many of China’s most realized Buddhist masters
attained enlightenment in this very range!
