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!
