On the Road (길위에서)

길위에서 (gil-eui-ae-suh)

Directed by Lee Chang-jae (이창재)

Documentary

112min | Release date in South Korea :

Formerly known as "Bhikkuni - Buddhist Nuns"
Synopsis
Baekheung-am Temple, a bhikkhunī (Buddhist nun) temple which opens only twice a year, is famous for its conservatism and principles. Access to this temple is prohibited and so is picture-taking. Although it was difficult to get the permission for shooting, it unlatched the latch by itself after I was officially exiled four times. Monk Sunwoo who lost her parents when she was three years old and grew up in the temple asks herself if this way is what she chose and what it means to her. Monk Sangwook chose to become a Buddhist priest before she became a professor. Her old sick mother constantly visits her to change her mind. Old master of seventy years old, who has trained for 40 years, self-examines her severely asking if she has lived properly.

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "On the Road"

    2015/01/31
    Director Lee Chang-jae was refused entry to Baekhungam Temple several times before the nuns there finally agreed to let her film "On the Road". This refusal probably had less to do with religious reasons or even privacy so much as they weren't even sure what Lee Chang-jae wanted. The lives of Buddhist nuns aren't terribly interesting. The exams are about as exciting as temple life gets, and even those aren't that much different than anyone else's exams anywhere else,...More
