The 1000 Days

28th March 2018

I lived in Kyoto for a couple of years and knew of these monks, so knew I had to include this film when I saw it. A thousand marathons in a thousand days, phew! This film captures the intensity of the Japanese psyche well, and puts it with beautiful imagery and an atmospheric sounds track. Great stuff. Incidentally, a while back I watched a really old Channel 4 documentary on these monks which you can watch for free on youtube. Well worth digging out if you want to know more.
