Directed by Zhang Yang, Paths of the Soul follows ordinary Tibetan citizens as they undertake a grueling 1,200-mile Buddhist “bowing” pilgrimage to Lhasa, stopping only to prostrate themselves every few yards. The seven-month trek depicted in this incredible and scenic docudrama is both a provocative and fascinating study in religion and spirituality. The film screens at 6:45 tonight and at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Tickets are $9. (Immerman).
