Sister, Sister

Canada, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Documentary)

Director: Julie Trimingham

Same set, same crew, different worlds! A nun and a prostitute, obviously divided by their way of life, both separately, quietly and hon­estly explain what makes each other do what they do. Their outlook on the world both spiri­tually and morally shows they have more in common than what they or we think; their blood. Simple and punchy they do not talk about each others profession, moreover, their own way of coping with it.
