A fictional documentary about the great Japanese poet Bashô ( Protected content ), spiritual father of haiku poetry. A monk who plays Bashô in the film travels on foot and sometimes with a horse, following the footsteps of the poet’s travel diary through the Japanese landscapes. On the way he writes many of his famous haikus. A meditative, poetic, nearly buddhist Zen vision of an inviolate nature.

The director Richard Dindo will be present and will talk with the public after the movie. The movie and the discussion will be in French.

Haiku is a form of poetry, first made popular in Japan, which has become appreciated around the world. Haiku poets are challenged to convey a vivid message in only 17 syllables.

Let's meet inside the Espace Andrée Chedid 15 minutes before the movie.
Hope to see you there!
