Synopsis

From 12th-century China, to 21st-century London, a parable of life.
In Ten Bulls, Kim Bour has taken the Chinese master Kakuan's illustrated fable of the herdsman in search of the elusive bull, and presented it as modern epic of mankind's struggle for understanding.

Trapped by modern life, we sway aimlessly, seeking purpose and true satisfaction. Ten Bulls tracks one man's search for this truth.
Through rich sound design and flowing imagery, Kim Bour leads us through an almost meditative illustration of this timeless quest. Rich and mystical, yet controlled, Ten Bulls melds the harmony of Zen philosophy and film-making: the simplicity that we see all around us - a petal in a stream, a perfect circle - all blend in a modern meditation.
To find, we must seek. The unexamined life is worthless. 'I find the world in me'.
