"ONE MIND is a rare cinematic portrait of life inside one of China's most austere and revered Zen communities. The monks at Zhenru Chan Monastery continue to uphold a strict monastic code established over 1200 years ago by the founding patriarchs of Zen in China. In harmony with the land that sustains them, the monks operate an organic farm, grow tea, and harvest bamboo to fuel their kitchen fires. At the heart of this community, a group of cloistered meditators sit in silence for eight hours every day. More than a portrait of life within this monastic community, ONE MIND is an experiment in Buddhist filmmaking. A markedly quiet and contemplative film, Burger has set forth to craft a documentary that is not 'about' Buddhism, but rather a 'Buddhist film'. Taking inspiration from traditional Zen stories and lessons told to him by elder monks and teachers at Zhenru monastery, ONOE MIND is a cinematic meditation exploring the trials and challenges we all myst face when we set forth to become wiser, kinder human beings."--Container.
