Storyline

Celebrates Sister Rose Thering, for 67 years a Dominican nun. Her passion is anti-Semitism. Archival footage looks at her growing up in Wisconsin and taking the veil in her teens. Interviews with scholars and common people capture the extent to which "Christ killers" was a standard Catholic description of Jews. Sister Rose's research at Saint Louis University in the 1950s into the presentation of Jews within Catholic educational materials leads to the publication of "Nostra Aetate," a document released in 1965 by the Second Vatican Council. Since that time, she's dedicated herself to eradicating anti-Semitism. The film ends with a critique of Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ." Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Take that Mel Gibson!
25 November 2004 | by (Brooklyn) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Tribeca Film Festival with the Q & A with Sister Rose afterwards. It was an intensely emotional experience. As a Jew the film's subject matter is particularly relevant to me, but the film's themes are universal. The film's subject, Sister Rose and her struggle to change the Catholic Church's official doctrine concerning the Jews, offers glimpses into the spirit of a true activist and the process of change for meta-institutions. While the film's conflict, the struggle to change official church doctrine, is poignant given the popularity of Gibson's 'Passion', it is Sister Rose herself who steals the show. This elderly Nun, who is not in the best of health, has more spitfire that a Redbull guzzling adolescent skater. While this is accurately portrayed in the film, it became even more evident during the Q & A session after the Tribeca screening. Sister Rose took the mike from the Director and would not give it back. While she did answer the audience's questions she did an equal amount of prophesizing and preaching on the topics of equality, justice, and the fight against hate. I left that screening with a renewed sense of optimism and the furnace of my own 'passion' stoked!

The best documentary I have seen so far this year.
