(SUNDAY FEATURE) – Sunday September 7 at 9.00 PM
The seasons symbolise the stages in the life of man, in this case, a young Korean monk who shares a floating monastery with his master. Under the watchful eyes of the old monk, the young man experiences the loss of innocence when play turns to cruelty; the awakening of love when a woman enters their closed world; the murderous power of jealousy and obsession; the price of redemption and the enlightenment of experience.
