A Journey to Xiangtangshan

A clip from a video featured in the exhibition "Echoes of the Past: The Buddhist Cave Temples of Xiangtangshan," on view at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Feb. 26-July 31, 2011. The four-minute documentary illustrates how the caves thrive as sites of visitation and worship today. Filmed from the perspective of a first-time visitor, it leads viewers from the nearby industrial town of Fengfeng to the centuries-old footpath up to the northern Xiangtangshan caves. It ends with footage of worshipers and tourists at the entrance to the northern group's South Cave. Visit to learn more. The video was directed and edited by Judy Hoffman, with assistance from Lec Maj, videography; Leslie Simmer and Manol Georgieff, editing; and Jim Morrissette, color correction. Post-production facilities were provided by Kartemquin Films.
