Product Description

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary SISTER ROSE’S PASSION tells the inspirational story of a most unlikely activist who has made the battle against anti-Semitism her life’s work. This poignant, must-see film chronicles the life story of Sister Rose THering, a gutsy Dominican nun who had the courage, the toughness, and the passion to resist the status quo and push for what she believed was right. Sister Rose’s work had a direct bearing on the historic Vatican II Council that reformed the Catholic Church’s position on Jews and Judaism, and it is her spirit of resistance that shines throughout this documentary as she continues her energetic crusade amidst the swirl of controversy that surrounded Mel Gibson’s blockbuster film The Passion of the Christ. With SISTER ROSE’S PASSION, award-winning fimmaker Oren Jacoby has created an exceptional portrait revealing "how one person can change the world" (The New York Times), keenly capturing Sister Rose’s determination and unprecedented sense of right and wrong.
