Antaiji, being a Zen temple in the sticks of Japan but full of foreigners and a German abbot, tends to attract a lot of interest.

They have a bunch of videos here:

Some of it is about the Abbot, other videos are focused on the work and practise at the temple (doing agriculture all day and four hours of zazen at dawn and dusk is gruelling at times but spiritually rewarding)
