The Screen Guide

THE BUDDHA'S FORGOTTEN NUNS is a documentary film that reveals a little-known truth about Buddhism – that women cannot be fully ordained the same way that men can. Produced by South Australian based production company Budaya Productions, the film’s Director Wiriya Sati has spent the past 5 years traveling to monasteries in Thailand, UK, U.S.A. and Australia, to ask why women can’t ordain as a female monk in the Theravada tradition of Buddhism.
