Aloka Vihara - A Monastery for Women

Role: Editor

A short documentary about a community of Buddhist bhikkhunis (fully-ordained Buddhist nuns) who broke off from their previous lineages that excluded women from becoming fully-ordained. The sisters are developing a rural monastery where women are free to train as nuns, and the lay community can come to practice.
