THE FILM

In Band of Sisters, the work of two nuns outside a Chicago-area deportation center serves as an introduction to the tumultuous and engaged world of U.S. Catholic nuns in the fifty years following Vatican II. From sheltered “daughters of the church” once swathed in medieval dress to activists on the front lines of causes for social justice, Band of Sisters follows the journey of these religious women in their work for civil rights, immigration reform, and a host of other causes. Becoming increasingly relevant and visible in aid of the poor and disenfranchised, the sisters now increasingly find themselves on a collision course with the conservative elements in their own church.
