One of the most celebrated journeys in history is that of Tang dynasty Chinese monk Xuanzang, who traveled to India and brought back essential Buddhist texts and teachings. Reenactments, location filming and animation are compellingly used to introduce a truly legendary figure (the inspiration for the many Journey to the West and Monkey stories and films).

This screening is part of the International Buddhist Film Festival 2012 Hong Kong. For more information, please visit AsiaSociety.org/IBFF.
