Playful. Profound. Meditative. Deeply healing. “Moving from Emptiness: The Life and Art of a Zen Dude” is more than just a film, it’s a transformational experience. Rated one of the top documentaries at the Sedona Int. Film festival, this 69-minute film features the work and teachings of Zen calligraphic painter Alok Hsu Kwang-han. Armed with rice paper, ink, brush, and a collection of Zen teachings and koans, Alok opens the door to a world of magical brush strokes and enchanted students. On the verge of his 75th birthday and with a new love in his life Alok employs his teachings to confront his own personal history. In the film we experience Zen not as a religion or philosophy, but as a way of life for Alok and his partner, fellow artist Raylene Abbott.  Together they face the challenges inherent in art, life and relationships by embracing their world moment to moment, taking what comes and "moving from emptiness."
