This debut feature by American filmmaker Brian Perkins was beautifully photographed at a Buddhist monastery nestled in the jungle-mountains of Myanmar. The story is simple yet resonant: four young monks must fend for themselves when their head abbot is called away, on foot through the mountain passes, for a mission from which he may never return. Self-sufficient and without family or possessions, these young monks exhibit great discipline in their daily tasks and spiritual rituals and yet (of course) boys will sometimes be boys. Exquisite camerawork observes endearing portraits of the non-actors and their isolated world, one that can encompass ghostly phenomena, in this mysterious and meditative tale. In Burmese with English subtitles. Writer/Director: Brian Perkins. (US/Myanmar 2015) 103 min.
