An intimate glimpse into the lives of the Catholic Sisters of Manitoba, this documentary is a testament to the deep and permanent imprint they have left and continue to leave in our communities. Stories of the sisterhood and their ground-breaking work for social justice are laced with humour, feminism and compassion.
Soul Sisters: The Catholic Women Religious of Manitoba is part of an initiative to acknowledge, commemorate and celebrate the Catholic Sisters – working in English, French and Ukrainian language communities – who have served since 1844. The tribute, the Legacy of Care, Courage and Compassion is led by the Catholic Health Association of Manitoba.
The film is written and directed by Danielle Sturk, whose credits include A Good Madness: The Dance of Rachel Browne. Danielle is a bilingual independent filmmaker creating in documentary, experimental and fiction genres. For Soul Sisters she brought together key personnel from the thriving francophone production community in Winnipeg.
Producer is Joanne Levy for Buffalo Gal Pictures in partnership with the Catholic Health Association of Manitoba and in association with VisionTV, with the participation of Manitoba Film and Music and the Canadian Film and Video Production Tax Credit
The Catholic Health Association of Manitoba (CHAM) is a voluntary, provincial association dedicated to the healing Ministry of the Catholic Church.
