3:00 pm | $10/$8 members | (2003) | Drama/Romance | 1h 45m | Q&A with Doyeon Park, Won Dharma Center
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter … and Spring, a beautiful timeless narrative set in South Korea, reveals unexpected moments in the upbringing of a child in the care of a solitary Buddhist monk. Living in a temple that floats on a lake entirely surrounded by nature, the boy passes through the four seasons from childhood to manhood. He uniquely meets the aggression, joy, sorrow, anger and transcendence of being human. The director, Kim Ki-duk, appears in glorious form in the “Winter” segment of the film.
Respondent: Doyeon Park, Won Dharma Center, Hudson, NY. Reverend Park is an ordained teacher in the Won Buddhist tradition and represents Korean Buddhism at the United Nations.
