Lem - initiation of a little Buddha- Leonelli Laura

For the first time a woman is allowed into a Buddhist monastery, discovering Laos and its monasteries.
With her touching words and intense photographs, Laura Leonelli tells the world of Lem, an aspiring monk, and his entry in a monastery.

In Laos, one of the most beautiful and least known countries of the East, in a small village in the mountains, a twelve-year-old boy, Lem, is about to enter the monastery.
In the fragile space between a dawn and a sunset, Lem will abandon his family and become a novice in the holy city of Theravada Buddhism, Luang Prabang. In just a few hours Lem will leave behind his past, his affections, his child games and his mothers caresses. In order to continue his studies, to become an adult, Lem will have to bear detachment, loneliness, hunger, fear, the vision of death. The only way for him to gain a new maturity is by subjecting himself to the rigours of the rite of initiation; rigours we are no longer familiar with, belonging as we do to a society that has endlessly extended the boundaries of adolescence.

Laura Leonelli describes his daily life, the fears, the longings and the hopes of the young monks, from a unique and privileged perspective.

Lem, wrapped in the orange robe, is about to join a world composed entirely of men, symbol of all authority. But accompanying him on this journey, in the week preceding the Laotian New Year and while people wait for the rain that will swell the waters of the Mekong and make the gold of the pagodas shine, is a female gaze, unprecedented and, in a way, forbidden. The gaze of his mother and the author. Together, they will follow Lem to his new home. They will enter the cells of the monks with him, sleep in the darkness of the temples and walk in silence in the heart of the forest, the place where the masters retreat in meditation. Together, a mother and a son, a woman and the man who is to be, will experience the pain hidden in all life.
