Tribeca Film Festival presents, Journey to the West by Tsai Ming Liang
Thursday, April 24, 2014
12:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Run Time: 56 mins (played on loop)
Experience Tsai Ming Liang's immersive, meditative Journey to the West as an installation in the VW Dome.
A meditation loosely based on the classical Chinese story by Wu Cheng’en, this groundbreaking new interpretation brings the legendary pilgrimage of a Buddhist monk into the present tense. Tsai Ming Liang bids us to look and listen, providing a timeless take on the spiritual journey of an individual in constant negotiation with the self and the substrate in which he finds himself. Journey to the West proposes that true enlightenment awaits those who endure.
Sunday Sessions is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator with Mike Skinner, Producer, Alex Sloane, Live Programming Coordinator and Rosey Selig-Addiss, Production Assistant.
Sunday Sessions and the VW Dome at MoMA PS1 are made possible by a partnership with Volkswagen of America.
