Synopsis

In 1960s Los Angeles, The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary fought for equality, their livelihoods, and freedom against an all-powerful Cardinal who sought to keep them in their place. Their bold acts of faith, defiance and activism turned the church upside down, helping to reshape our society in ways that continue to resonate today. Pedro Kos’s Rebel Hearts combines two decades of never-before-seen incredible archival footage and stunning animation to beautifully illustrate the story of these incredible women.

This in-theater screening includes a moderated post-film conversation. Panelists include director Pedro Kos and film subjects Lenore Navarro Dowling and Rosa Manriquez, moderated by Jenelle Riley, Editor of Variety.
