"What is the Sound of One Hand Clapping?''
(d. Liliane Lijn 1973, 14 minutes)





The film documents Lijn's continuing interest in cones, from 1964 to 1972. The title is taken from a Japanese koan, a Zen meditation riddle given to novice Buddhist monks as a tool to quieten the mind. As the title suggests, Lijn's koans attempt to dissolve matter and empty the mind.
