"There's a definite human commonality in this documentary" - HanCinema

"On the Road" (길위에서, AKA "Bhikkuni - Buddhist Nuns") is the first documentary set in the fascinating, veiled, strictly prohibited Baekhong Temple; a women only Buddhist monastery in the pristine mountains of South Korea, where the nuns practice their ascetic traditions in sheer isolation from the outside world, opening the doors to the public for merely two days each year.

This introspective, visually striking exposé of female spirituality in contemporary Korea offers an unprecedented glimpse into the secluded lives of four women of various ages who had decided to enter the Buddhist priesthood for various reasons — one woman was drawn to monastic life following a visit to a Buddhist center, a second woman located the temple on the internet, a third woman lived in the temple after being left there as a child, and the fourth is becoming a nun out of remorse.

 

103 minutes, in Korean with English subtitles.
