Trailer for Radical Grace which will be screening at the Hot Docs Film Festival.

Religion has always been invoked in US politics, but now it's the religious who are invoking politics, demanding social and economic reform. Radical Grace follows three American nuns who live by a gospel of love, justice and inclusion as they challenge the Catholic Church’s hierarchy and transform politics. Sister Simone runs NETWORK, a nun's lobby group that defies the old boys’ club of Catholicism and defends the Affordable Care Act. Sister Jean is committed to re-integrating ex-convicts into society. And Sister Chris records historical proof of the Church’s ancient female leadership in order to promote equality between women and men of the cloth. When the Vatican launches an investigation into the US nuns’ "radical feminist beliefs," issuing a censure to curb their involvement in socio-political issues, they refuse to be silenced. But the sisters are torn between their religious beliefs, their belonging to the Sisterhood and their community activism. Will they continue to serve the faith, regardless of what the Church thinks?
