The Nowhere from Here film festival presents six films that directed by Richard Linklater. He deeply explores the meaning of life and discussed it in selected movies. The film festival is a two-day life rehealing program. It not only has movies, but also includes meditation, yoga and vegetarian dining (Linklater himself is a vegetarian). The goal of festival is to inspire people defining their meaning of life, and to know their desires.
Self-taught writer-director Richard Stuart Linklater was born in Houston, Texas. He was among the first and most successful talents to emerge during the American independent film renaissance of the 1990s. Typically setting each of his movies during one 24-hour period, Linklater's work explored what he dubbed "the youth rebellion continuum," focusing in fine detail on generational rites and mores with rare compassion and understanding while definitively capturing the 20-something culture of his era through a series of nuanced, illuminating ensemble pieces which introduced any number of talented young actors into the Hollywood firmament. ABOUT TASSAJARA ZEN MOUNTAIN CENTER
The Tassajara Zen Mountain Center in the Ventana Wilderness area of the Los Padres National Forest, southeast of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, is the oldest Japanese Buddhist Sōtō Zen monastery in the United States. The Center is very isolated, more than 16 miles (26 km) from the nearest paved road, and only accessible via a narrow, steep, one-lane dirt road. During the winter months, practitioners live on site. During the summer months, the Center is opened to day and overnight guests. The hot springs have been developed into Japanese-style baths. It is the first Zen monastery established outside of Asia.
