An outstanding feature documentary filmed on location in Japan. There is a unique spiritual school of Japanese asceticism called Shugendo, the Way of Acquiring Power, a blend of Buddhism, Shinto, and Taoism. Followers practice arduous rituals in mountain wildernesses and are deeply commited to protecting the natural environment. Shugendo is believed to have first been organized by a seventh century mystic named En no Ozunu (En no Gyoja). Shugendo is not one isolated tradition but various expressions of spiritual practice that share common practices and similar aims. Ozuna - who is venerated as a bodhisattva - authored the Sutra on the Unlimited Life of the Threefold Body, a central text used by Shugenja.

This documentary Shugendo is a modern look at the practice, and a poetic and intimate journey into a rarely seen world between the developed and the wild, between the present and the infinite.

Filmed on location in Japan's Kumao Mountains, Tokyo and Osaka.

Bonus DVD feature: Featurette with the filmmakers Mark Patrick McGuire and Jean-Marc Abela.

In Japanese with English subtitles. Additional options of French, Spanish, and Italian subtitles.

NTSC free zone, all regions.

"Everywhere you go you can find a sacred mountain...Between the developed and the wild, between the present and the infinite...For us, these mountains are the dwellings of the kamis (spirits or forces of nature) and the Buddhas".
