Radical Grace

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.

I’m one of the “nones,” part of a growing demographic of religiously unaffiliated millennials. So I could never have predicted that I’d be making a film about… nuns. After learning about this group of Catholic Sisters, I was enthralled by their approach to social justice work as a spiritual practice and knew I had to share it with the world.


Exhilarating…easily ranks among the year’s best films.

Regardless of your religious beliefs, we can all agree to jump on the bus.

The Washington Post:
Bearing witness to…clear-eyed moral courage.

Toronto Film Scene:
Throughout the documentary, their struggles and triumphs become ours, which is a testament not only to the Sisters, but also to director Rebecca Parrish…

Huffington Post:
The film — at turns entertaining, educational and inspiring — illustrates profoundly how social justice and spirituality are inseparably linked.
