SISTER"A major piece of art for social justice."
SISTER is a one-hour documentary highlighting the work of death penalty abolitionist Sister Helen Prejean. The film examines the life and influences of Sister Helen and delves into the evolving role of Catholic nuns in America. This poignant piece follows Sister Helen (best selling author of Dead Man Walking) as she counsels and fights for the stay of execution of Oklahoma death row inmate Richard Glossip.
The film was directed and filmed by Joe Cardona and José L. Vázquez, and is co-produced by WPBT PBS South Florida.
