response to the anti-Semitism perceived as being in Mel Gibsonís The Passion Of The Christ, the Academy
Awards nominated the unusually short Oren Jacoby documentary Sister Roseís Passion (2004) about how
this very young nun back in the 1950s took on The Vatican, Europe and
anti-Jewish hatred in its institutionalized from within The New Testament and
caused change that is still happening today.
anti-Semitism has not risen again, but this does come out at a time when all
the Semite religions are hijacked and everything that should not be happening
form the very people in power who should know better is begin allowed to happen
again.† Never forgetting goes beyond The
Holocaust these days and besides readdressing the obvious that can never be
assumed to be permanently learned lessons, this is a history lesson of how
change can be made for the better and that it does not have to be through
violence.† Great to have it on DVD.
X 1 image varies in quality throughout, with images a bit softer than would
have been hoped for, but this is still typical of most such documentaries that
reach back decades as this does.† The
Dolby Digital 2.0 is simple stereo at best and just fine for such a
project.† Extras include Sister Rose at
the Tribeca Film Festival, outtakes, text on director Jacoby, a text statement
by him on his work, his Charlie Rose
statement and more interview clips with Sister Rose herself.† She is worth listening to very closely.
