Synopsis

DARK RED FOREST is an exploration of the mysterious daily life of women devoted to their faith. 20.000 Buddhist nuns live in a monastery on a snowy plateau in Tibet, China. Surrounded by harsh nature and secluded from the outside world, these women offer us a glimpse into their religious exploration of life’s biggest questions. Far away from their families, the nuns commit everything to reach a divine state, entrusting themselves to the guru and each other.
