Watch the first clip from Rebel Hearts, the new documentary directed by Pedro Kos world premiering at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.

The documentary follows a group of pioneering nuns who bravely stand up to the Catholic Church patriarchy, fighting for their livelihoods, convictions and equality against an all-powerful Cardinal. From marching in Selma in 1965 to the Women’s March in 2018, these women have reshaped our society with their bold acts of defiance. The project combines archival footage, animation, and two decades of interviews gathered by the film’s producer Shawnee Isaac-Smith.
