Women in Film: In Front of and Behind the Camera
“A Thousand Mothers,” set at an ancient nunnery above the Irrawaddy River, looks at the lives of Buddhist nuns in Sagaing, Myanmar and contrasts the opportunities offered to them at the nunnery to the limited choices available to girls and women in Myanmar itself. Directed by Kim Shelton, this documentary had an all women crew on the ground in Myanmar.
