ShikokuUnknown - 2014
In this landmark series, New York Times best-selling author Bruce Feiler travels with American pilgrims on six historic routes to Lourdes, Japan, Jerusalem, Mecca, India, and Nigeria-changing how we view our own spiritual journeys. This film follows the path of Buddhist pilgrims, called henro, on an 800-mile, 88-temple hike around Shikoku Island as they seek clarity and renewal. A retired Marine returns to complete a journey disrupted by injury; medical school graduates put their relationship to the test by spending 24 hours a day together for 38 days; and members of a hiking group find insights in physical and mental challenges. Along the way, they learn that the journey, not the destination, provides the deepest experiences.
