The Face

Live-action retelling of a Zen legend about the rewards of honesty.

Debuted on national PBS, 1999.

Inspired by a traditional Zen parable, this film tells of a young boy, his friends, and a storyteller whose yarns come alive in glorious computer animation. Nearing his end, the storyteller announces he will bestow his magical story mask (“the Face”) on whoever does best planting a magic seed.
