International Film Festival - "Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter and … Spring." 2-4 p.m. In the midst of the Korean wilderness, a Buddhist master patiently raises a young boy to grow up in wisdom and compassion, through experience and endless exercises. Once the pupil discovers his sexual lust, he seems lost to contemplative life and follows his first love, but soon fails to adapt to the modern world, gets in jail for a crime of passion and returns to the master in search of spiritual redemption and reconciliation with karma, at a high price of physical catharsis. Free. White Plains Public Library, 100 Martine Ave., White Plains. www.whiteplainslibrary.org
