It is a 2004 short documentary film directed by Oren Jacoby.
It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short and won the Best Documentary Short Award at the 2004 Tribeca Film Festival.
Sister Rose Thering is a a gutsy Dominican nun who had the courage, the toughness, and the passion to push for what she believed was right.
Her work had a direct bearing on the historic Varican II Council that reformed the Catholic Church's position on Jews and Judaism, and it is her spirit of resistence that shines throughout this documentary as she continues her energetic crusade amidst the swirl of controversy that surrounded Mel Gibson's blockbuster film: The Passion of the Christ.
It is admirable that Sister Rose Thering pushed for what she believed was right.
For the same toke, however, Mel Gibson made his film to show what he believed was right.
Gibson said, "This is a movie about love, hope, faith and forgiveness. Jesus died for all mankind, suffered for all of us. It's time to get back to that basic message. The world has gone nuts. We could all use a little more love, faith, hope and forgiveness."
The thing is, everybody should have a right to express what he or she believe is right.
