Raindance Film Festival presents Yujiro Seki's Carving The Divine.

Carving the Divine is a documentary film that offers a rare look into the 1400-year-old Buddhist wood carving tradition and the practitioners struggling to preserve its legacy in a rapidly changing Japan. The film provides profound insight into the Japanese psyche as well as the nature of human perseverance through suffering.
