The School of the Forest

A Feature film by Alain Mazars

Produced by Guilgamesh

Production year : 2002


    The story of how people are fascinated by hermits who live in isolation in the forest, a tradition still alive in Burma, and called “the school of the forest.”
    This road movie/documentary was shot in Burma, and shows the initiatory journey of Didier, a 31- year-old French man who used to be homeless, and who became an itinerant Buddhist monk. He then decided to live in isolation in a forest next to Mandalay for an unlimited period of time, maybe until the day he dies, so that he can experience the enlightenment.
