Wheel of time( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wheel of Time is acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog's gorgeously photographed look at the largest Buddhist ritual in Bodh Gaya, India. It is said that Buddha found enlightenment under a tree in Bodh Gaya and today, Buddhist monks are ordained in this holy place. Herzog magically captures the lengthy pilgrimage (which for some, is over 3,000 miles), the monk's creation of the beautiful and intricate sand mandala (the wheel of time) along with many secret rituals that have never been seen before on film. He delivers a personal and introspective look at what Buddhism really means to the most ardent followers, as well as giving outsiders an intimate look into a fascinating way of life."--Cover

Happy people : a year in the Taiga( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Werner Herzog, director of Grizzly Man, Encounters at The End of The World and Cave of Forgotten Dreams, presents yet another awe-inspiring documentary, this time following the lives of the indigenous people living in the heart of the Siberian Taiga. Deep within this remote landscape, facing the most hostile conditions on earth, 300 people inhabit the small village of Bakhatia. There are only two ways to reach the outpost, by helicopter and by boat. In this wilderness there are no phones, running water or medical aid. The people live according to their own values and cultural traditions which have remained unchanged for centuries. With his wonderfully evocative narration accompanying the breath-taking imagery, Werner Herzog brings us another remarkable encounter."--Container
