Description
Buddhism is mostly known in the West through male monks. The Sisters of Ladakh is a unique inquiry into the feminine vision of Buddhism. Filmed on location in Ladakh, on the Himalayan border between India and Tibet, this documentary features stunning cinematography and compelling testimonies of Buddhist nuns. The film documents their daily activities in an intimate and candid way, encompassing both their religious practices and the interaction with the local communities. The nuns also discuss the condition of women in Buddhism, the current efforts to overcome gender prejudices and the challenges that lie ahead to build a compassionate world both at the local and global levels. The documentary also features public teachings of the Dalai Lama..The Sisters of Ladakh is a unique look at a vanishing world, bringing to Western audiences a rare contemporary perspective from Buddhist women.
