THE GATES OF SHINTO

A DOCUMENTARY FILM BY JEAN-CLAUDE LUBTCHANSKY

Co-directed by Gabrielle Lubtchansky and Mikaƫl Lubtchansky

Donations: £10.00 (Students: £5.00)

A documentary film by Jean-Claude Lubtchansky, co-directed by Gabrielle Lubtchansky and Mikaël Lubtchansky and produced by Jon Pepper for Mulberry Tree (Length 66 minutes).

 

Shinto, which is still largely unknown in the West, is based on the intimate relationship between Man and Nature. Kami, invisible spirits (in trees, waterfalls and animals) representing the creative force of the universe, are at the heart of Shinto, a tradition without a founder, doctrine or sacred texts.
The Gates of Shinto is the first film showing the different aspects of this tradition, which is the source of Japanese culture and is still very much alive today. It tells the myth of Amaterasu, the sun goddess, on a pilgrimage which pays homage to nature and the ancestors, through martial arts and ceremonies in shrines, including rarely accessible rituals, such as the night ceremonies within Ise sanctuaries. Support from the Association of Shinto Shrines made this film possible and opened the doors to the most remarkable Shinto sites in Japan.
