13th Green Mountain Film Festival: <i>Shugendo Now</i> Montpelier Vermont

How does one integrate lessons learned from nature in daily life? This feature documentary is an experiential journey into the mystical practices of Japanese mountain asceticism. In Shugendo (the way of acquiring power), practitioners perform ritual actions from shamanism, Shinto, Daoism, and Tantric Buddhism. Through the peace and beauty of the natural world, practitioners reconnect with their truest nature. But how does one return to the city after an enlightening experience in the mountains? This film explores how a group of modern Japanese people integrate the myriad ways that mountain learning interacts with urban life. With intimate camera work and a sensual sound design, the viewer is taken from deep within the Kumano Mountains to the worlds of Osaka and Tokyo and back again. Post-film events: co-director Mark Mcguire will speak after both shows. Sponsoreed by Katherine and John Paterson.Community Partners: Green Mountain Club, Japan Society of Vermont. 91 minutes, in Japanese with subtitles. Film website
