Film Screening: “The Departure”

Join Brooklyn Zen Center at a screening of the moving new film, The Departure, on Sunday, October 15, at 5 p.m., at the beautiful Metrograph theater.

Praised by the press as “stunning”, “deeply meditative”, and “a portrait of unbelievable humanity”, The Departure follows a former punk-turned-Buddhist-priest in Japan who has made a career out of counseling suicidal people and now finds himself at a crossroads confronting the same question his patients ask him: what makes life worth living?

BZC co-founder and teacher Laura O’Loughlin will be leading a discussion following the screening.

We hope that you are able to join us for this unforgettable evening!
