ABOUT THE FILM
In 2003, director Jayasri Hart reunited the nuns who visited Selma in 1965 to view themselves and the protests on tape for the first time. Selmians, both Catholic and Protestant, offer their views on the nuns’ contributions to history. A powerful, affirming new story of faith and justice emerges.

Featuring a Franciscan Sister of Mary, Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, Sisters of St. Joseph of Rochester, a Sister of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and co-members of the Loretto Community.
