The Daughters of Wisdom film has just been released after being years in the making. It is about the empowerment of women in a remote Tibetan Nunnery.
From their website:
…now, for the first time, the women of Nangchen are being given the choice to change the course of their lives. Built with their own hands and ever expanding, the Kala Rongo Monastery is home to nearly 300 nuns who study and practice full-time, creating new opportunities for themselves and for the community they serve.
Daughters of Wisdom is an intimate experiential portrait of these nuns, who are receiving unprecedented educational and spiritual training, and preserving their rich cultural heritage even as they slowly reshape it. Some shy, some outspoken, all committed to the often difficult life they have chosen, the nuns graciously allowed our camera a never-before-seen glimpse into their vibrant spiritual community and insight into their extraordinary lives.
Here is the theatrical tralier for the film.
It is possible to buy the DVD from their website, and it is also available via Netflix. I hope we will get a chance to see the film over here soon also.
