Saturday documentaries at the KCC

Sarira CasketEvery Saturday from late August and throughout September there will be screenings of a documentary about the remarkable Silla Dynasty “Sarira Casket of Kameun Temple” at the KCC (right).

Screenings will last around 20 minutes, and are provisionally scheduled for noon, 2pm and 4pm:

Impossible to replicate with modern technology, this 1300 year-old Sarira Casket remains a mystery of ancient craftsmanship. From the golden granules that are only 0.3 mm in diameter to the carvings of expressions on faces smaller than a rice-grain, this masterpiece of Buddhist metalwork houses many untold secrets.

While you’re there, you can sample the CD and DVD library downstairs, and browse around the ceramics exhibition on the ground floor.
