A Little Wisdom is Mongolian director Yuqi Kang’s intimately observed portrait of orphaned monks living in an isolated monastery in Lumbini, Nepal. Here, in the birthplace of Buddha, we follow the daily routine of five-year-old novice monk Hopakuli, who has been at the monastery since he was two. Kang is a Buddhist and watching the day-to-day activities of her subjects deepened her appreciation and understanding of the practice, she said. The film’s beautiful photography and gentle pacing is as lulling as a meditation, but while its subtle rhythms and symbols evoke Buddhist teachings, A Little Wisdom also reveals the contradictions between Hopakuli’s austere monastic upbringing and a child’s natural fascination with the world beyond.
