Since 2014, director Joe Cardona and cinematographer José L. Vázquez have been traveling around the country filming for Sister. It’s a film about the life and work of Sister Helen Prejean.
It’s a film about her sisterhood, the Congregation of St. Joseph.
It’s a film about how nuns have changed in the past 50 or 60 years to meet the needs and challenges of the world. It’s about the guilty and the innocent, about hurt and forgiveness. And it’s excellent! Joe knows how to let people tell their own stories, and José knows how to shoot a documentary with the eye of an artist. Sister was premiered in New Orleans and Miami in September and had its first public broadcast on PBS South Florida. It will get wide distribution on PBS in 2019. We’ll give you a heads up when that begins, but you’ll need to keep an eye out for it on your local PBS schedule.
