4:00 amQuestion of Habit This documentary examines the depiction of Catholic nuns in contemporary US popular culture. It contrasts these images with the lives of actual women religious, both historical and current. Although most Roman Catholic women religious in the US have not worn the full habits of their orders for over 40 years, images of nuns and sisters in such habits can be found in numerous and surprising aspects of pop culture.
Over 30 women religious, cultural critics, historians and artists were interviewed including: Sr. Helen Prejean (Dead Man Walking), Tom Fontana (Oz, Homicide), and Robert Orsi (Madonna of 115th Street). The film looks at the nature, scope and significance of these images as well as possible explanations for their increasing popularity and possible impact on our understanding of women religious. duration 57:53 STEREO TVG
