Sisters of Ladakha

Sisters of Ladakha introduces us to the world of 'female' Buddhism.

The documentary was shot on location in Ladakh, on the border between India and Tibet, surrounded by the Himalayas. It beautifully documents the compelling testimonies of Tibetan nuns. 'The Sisters' document their daily rituals, such as activities and religious practices, as well as their interaction with the local community. They also discuss the role of women within the Buddhist faith and efforts to overcome prejudices based solely on gender.
