The Chinese myth of the white snake and the meddling monk
Xu Xian had just received an invitation to the opening ceremony of a new temple. His wife, Bai Su Zhen, warned him not to attend, but Xu Xian, a devout Buddhist, felt obligated to make an appearance. What they didn't know was that these invitations had come from Fa Hai, the monk determined to separate them. Can the young lovers ever escape the monk's meddling? Shunan Teng shares this Chinese myth. [Directed by Kino Bino, narrated by Pen-Pen Chen, music by Gav Cantrell].
