The Little Theater
SBAI has partnered with The Little Theater and WXXI again to present our annual Women's History Month Film Series. This year our films focus on honoring women in public service, and look closely at the individual experiences of women through many lenses and genres of film.
ABOUT: When the Vatican reprimands U.S. nuns — citing their “radical feminism” — three fearless nuns risk their place in the Church to follow another higher calling: social justice.
One sister takes on Church patriarchy, another finds hope in the former prisoners she counsels, and the third launches a cross-country Nuns on the Bus tour, leveraging her newfound fame to spotlight social needs. These sisters “bring humor and down-to-earth grit to an epic battle for justice, equality and the dignity of women” (Gene Siskel Film Center).
Following their struggles through the election of Pope Francis, Radical Grace captures a period of dramatic transformation as the Catholic Church grapples with the modern word.
