Educational DVD


Educational Media Reviews Online (EMRO) gives Band of Sisters its highest rating: 

"Fishman's debut film Band of Sisters is a thought-provoking, intimate look at the lives of contemporary American nuns. An excellent choice for church libraries, high school media centers and public libraries, it is especially appropriate for academic collections supporting religious and women's studies programs, as well as courses in U.S. history and political science."
