Documentary Film: In The Footsteps of Wonhyo

P1010653

The documentary film “In the Footsteps of Wonhyo” has been completed. The film is one facet of the program to establish a permanent Wonhyo pilgrimage trail across the Korean Peninsula. Next steps involve releasing the film in Seoul in September, conducting another pilgrimage to delineate the trail, and writing a book about the Wonhyo Trail. These next steps will depend on fund raising. hank you again for your generous support. We hope you enjoy the film and look forward to keeping you updated on future developments of the Wonhyo Trail.

The film “In the Footsteps of Wonhyo” depicts a 500 kilometer journey by retired Canadian journalist Tony MacGregor. MacGregor crossed the Korean Peninsula in an attempt to understand the awakening experience of the eccentric Korean monk Wonhyo. Wonhyo, perhaps the most beloved of all Korean Buddhist saints, walked across the peninsula in the seventh century and found enlightenment in a cave on the western side of the peninsula. MacGregor’s journey, which involved staying at mountain monasteries and talking to monks, was the first in over 1.000 years to honor Wonhyo’s accomplishment.
