Film Synopsis: Radical Grace

Director: Rebecca Parrish | Countries of production: Italy, United States | Year: 2015 | Length: 77 min
Language: English | Age: 15+ years

A group of U.S. nuns take on their bishops, the Vatican and a Republican senator in their battle for social justice, affordable healthcare and the place of women in the church.

Like many American nuns, Sisters Simone Campbell, Jean Hughes and Chris Schenk have dedicated their lives to working for and within the community. Aware of their country’s shocking health inequalities, they opted in 2012 to publicly support Obama’s Affordable Care Act – disobeying their bishops and earning a censure from the Vatican for their “radical feminism” and overemphasis on social-justice work.

Through their service, their advocacy for those on the margins and their struggle for women’s religious equality, these women are transforming American politics — and the Church itself. Regardless of your spiritual leanings, this affectionate portrait of women grappling with their conscience and their duty offers a relatable and inspiring tribute to the power of compassion.
