As part of the fringe programme accompanying the exhibition Korea Rediscovered – Treasures from German Museums the Grassi Leipzig Ethnography Museum will be showing Kim Ki-duk’s 2003 film “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring” on April 5th.
Superficially the tale of one Buddhist monk’s journey through life, “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring” is a moving exploration of the human spirit, the challenges we all face and the journey we all undertake.
The innocence of the young child monk in the first spring moving through love, evil and enlightenment before spring returns in the form of rebirth.
In addition to the story the other highlight of the film is without question the scenery surrounding the floating hermitage in which the central scenes are set.
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring, Grassi Leipzig Ethnography Museum 05.04 2012 @ 8pm
