Sister Rose's Passion

It is not often you find a film featuring a Dominican nun, much less a film as good as Sister Rose's Passion.  It profiles Sister Rose Thering, who became an outspoken critic of the Church's educational publications regarding Jews.  Her doctoral dissertation was used as scholarly reference for Nostra Aetate in which the Second Vatican Council rectified centuries of faulty teachings regarding people of the Jewish faith. 

This is a documentary short film (39 mins) and the DVD contains several bonus features, including interviews with Sister Rose and her fellow sisters not featured in the film.  It was nominated for an Academy Award and won the Best Documentary Short at the Tribeca Film Festival.   For more information, consult the Internet Movie Database link here:
