Ainsi soient-elles - Maxime Faure


Sisterhood, a feature documentary by Maxime Faure. The first snow falls on Quebec. As the disappearance of their small religious community looms, the Helper Nuns begin sorting through their life—a lifetime of struggles.


These valiant “off-road” activists, who believe in God but not in a Church dominated by men, have spent years campaigning for women’s rights, social justice and international solidarity. Between apprehension about death, outbursts of laughter and meals washed down with wine, these dignified, free women live the meaning of sisterhood to the full. Until the very end.
