A Gentle Walk
Directed by Brandon Katcher
While filming a wedding one day, a filmmaker, fresh out of college, meets a Zen monk, who encourages him to drop everything and travel to South Asia. Reluctantly, the filmmaker agrees, and begins an unexpected journey—through India to the River Ganges to the Himalayas to Mount Everest—that is both deeply personal and, in many ways, universal.
