“Zen in America” documentary launches Kickstarter campaign

Zen in America, a planned multiple-part documentary, has launched a Kickstarter campaign. A project of Adam Tebbe, founder of Sweeping Zen, the film “tells the story of Zen Buddhism in North America through a patchwork of interviews with teachers of all North American Zen lines, recollections, and experiences of practitioners, analysis by scholars and academics, archival footage and photographs, and footage shot on location.”
