Streams of Light tells story of Shin Buddhism in America

A new film, Streams of Light, chronicles the development of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism in North America, from the arrival of the first Japanese priests in the late 19th century to the present.

Directed by Kentaro Sugao, a painter and a priest in the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha school, Streams of Light was filmed last summer and is now in post-production. Through February 3, a fundraising campaign seeks to cover post-production expenses — click here to view the campaign and make a donation.
