Bodhidharma's Shoe

Joshu Sasaki RoshiTwo-part movie of a dai-sesshin at Bodhi Manda in New Mexico with Joshu Sasaki Roshi, the last of the O.G. Japanese Zen "missionaries" to America. (See A Century of Zen, about his hundredth birthday.)

The film is by Tom Davenport, who writes:

I will be taking this film off revver.com in a few days. This is a draft version -- there some mistakes -- Bodhi Manda is a "Zen Center" -- not a monastery. The Roshi leads about 18 seven days sesshins a year, not 30, but still an impressive number! Also delivery of the narration and camera moves on the still pictures can be improved.

I will be putting the final film on www.folkstreams.net -- a free video streaming site that I direct from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. There are lots of interesting documentaries on American roots cultures there. You can reach me at tdaven at crosslink dot net.
