The documentary, “Bhikkhunī – Buddhism, Sri Lanka, Revolution” , presents the story of women who, in order to implement the Buddha’s teachings, however against the opinion of the monks’ Saṅgha, have become fully ordained bhikkhunīs – Buddhist nuns in the Theravāda tradition. The film’s protagonists are Bhikkhunī Kusuma from Sri Lanka (ordained in 1996 in India), Bhikkhunī Dhammananda from Thailand (ordained in 2003 in Sri Lanka) and Bhikkhunī Gautami from Bangladesh (ordained in 2016 in Sri Lanka) – the first women in their countries’ modern history to become fully ordained nuns.
