Daughters of Dolma takes viewers on a journey revealing a distinctively female experience of Tibetan Buddhism in the Kathmandu Valley. This feature-length documentary brings to the screen not just Buddhist spirituality and qualities like compassion and kindness, but Tibetan Buddhist nuns as full individuals beyond their monastic vows and religious practices. Daughters of Dolma reveals how gender and modernity are molding contemporary spiritual practices in Nepal. Daughters of Dolma is the filmed narration of an expedition trip in Nepal in June 2011.
The filmmakers lived among Tibetan Buddhist nuns from Karma Ngoedhon Osal Choekhorling and Karma Samte Ling Nunneries in Nepal and together with them explored age, modernity, spirituality, journey and gender issues.
