INQUIRING NUNS

United States | 1968 | Gordon Quinn, Gerald Temaner

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.
