Adam Tebbe announces comprehensive “Zen in America” film project

Sweeping Zen editor and aspiring filmmaker Adam Tebbe

The Sweeping Zen site brands itself as “the definitive online who’s who in Zen,” and now editor Adam Tebbe has announced his ambition to make an equally comprehensive film about Zen in America.

In an open letter published on the site today, Tebbe outlined his plan to “create a multi-part documentary offering viewers an overview of the founding of Zen in America, its practice and leaders in the modern day, and portions on ritual and more.” Promising a Kickstarter campaign soon to raise needed funds for the project, for now Tebbe has assembled an Amazon Wishlist to upgrade his film equipment.
