Women Make Movies about women and religion: THE SERMONS OF SISTER JANE

Wednesday, 9 May 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments


I’d like to let you all know about a new documentary from Women Make Movies about women and religion: THE SERMONS OF SISTER JANE. It is a wonderful resource for religious studies, women’s studies and feminist studies classes. I am providing some information below on this documentary and other related titles for your perusal!


THE SERMONS OF SISTER JANE: Believing the Unbelievable


“Sister Jane tells it like it is…Here is a feminist nun who lives the values of justice and equality. The film captures her spirit and spreads her convictions.”
-Mary E. Hunt, Ph.D.
Co-director, Women’s Alliance for Theology, Ethics and Ritual

When Sister Jane Kelly discovered that a priest in her church was molesting young men and stealing from the congregation, and when the evidence was ignored by the church, she contacted the press, creating a scandal. THE SERMONS OF SISTER JANE: BELIEVING THE UNBELIEVABLE–the latest project from the Oscar and Emmy Award winning team, Allie Light and Irving Saraf–is an engaging portrait of an outspoken nun who combines her deep spiritual faith with her equally powerful commitment towards resistance and change.
