INQUIRING NUNS film still

In 1968, two founders of Chicago’s pioneering documentary film cooperative Kartemquin Films (Hoop Dreams) enlisted earnest young nuns to travel around the Windy City asking passers-by, “Are you happy?” The varied responses provide a fascinating snapshot of a volatile era riven by Vietnam and racial unrest. This newly restored movie also features Philip Glass’s first credited film score. “A thought-provoking time capsule.” –NY Times. Cleveland revival premiere. DCP. 66 min.
