Daughters of Wisdom screening followed by speaker.

A collection of three films explore International questions of female education. Daughters of Wisdom is a breathtakingly beautiful film of the nuns of Kala Rongo, an unusual Buddhist monastery for women high in a remote region of Tibet. Breaking with their traditional roles, these nuns quietly contribute to the empowerment of women in Tibetan Buddhist culture. Punam is a moving documentary, narrated simply by nine year-old Punam Tamang, takes us through her daily life in Bhaktapur, Nepal as she mothers her siblings and goes to school, her one hope of a better life. Uncommon Heroes is an inspiring short film about the transformative work of social entrepreneur Ann Cotton who founded the Campaign for Female Education that now helps educate over 400,000 girls in Africa. (102 min, 2008) (Awards: Audience Award and Outstanding Achievement in Editing: Best Documentary: Brooklyn Int’l Film Festival; Official Selection: Atlantic Film Festival, Vancouver Int’l Film Festival, Mill Valley Film Festival)
