Zen Film

From Academy to Chan: Liang Kai

This last of the four Southern Song Academy masters is shown as providing a bridge between that tradition and the new kind of painting associated with Chan (Zen) Buddhism: why it was preserved almost entirely in Japan and scarcely at all in China. Film 72 minutes

Zen Principles and Practices

Documentary showing life in a Rinzai Zen temple. ‘Zen Principles and Practices’. Old Zen film 1986ish. Four parts of 29 minutes each. The film is not studio quality, but wonderful all the same.
