On the Eastern Tibetan plateau north of the Himalayas, at an altitude of 14,000 feet, Tibet’s 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 portrait of these nuns, who are receiving unprecedented educational and religious 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.
