:A Little Wisdom
Canada/China, 2017, 92 min
A Little Wisdom is an observationally nuanced portrait of the lives of orphaned young monks living in an isolated Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Lumbini, Nepal, the birthplace of the Buddha. Through the eyes of Hopakuli, a young novice monk, we search for transcendent insights on the relationships between brothers, between friends, between teachers and student, and perhaps most importantly, between the rough and tumble lives of adolescent boys and the austere religious environment they call home.
