Faith even to the fire by Jean Victor( Visual )

5 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This landmark documentary is the first to depict contemporary U.S. nuns in "action", living out a mission of social justice, even when it brings them into conflict with the established Catholic church. It follows the stories of three nuns: Rosa Martha Zarate, a Mexican sister who works and organizes Latinos in San Bernardino, CA.; Sister Judy Vaughan in Chicago, an Irish American nun whose pro-choice stand almost got her expelled from her religious order; and Sister Marie de Pores Taylor, an African-American nun who is a community and political activist in Oakland, CA. The sisters speak out about racism, sexism and classism within the church - what they ve done and still do to combat it, and how such biases affect the people they serve. They sisters describe the great inspiration they each took from the teachings of Vatican II (1962-65), as well as the powerful inspiration they inherited from the civil rights, farmworkers and women s movements. We see the sisters in their respective communities, following the dictates of personal conscience. In the words of Maxwell Anderson's Joan of Arc, they keep their faith " ... even to the fire."
Chicana by Sylvia Morales( Visual )

13 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chicana traces the history of Chicana and Mexican women from pre-Columbian times to the present. It covers women's role in Aztec society, their participation in the 1810 struggle for Mexican independence, their involvement in the US labor strikes in 1872, their contributions to the 1910 Mexican revolution and their leadership in contemporary civil rights causes. Using murals, engravings and historical footage, Chicana shows how women, despite their poverty, have become an active and vocal part of the political and work life in both Mexico and the United States

A Crushing Love( Visual )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A CRUSHING LOVE, Sylvia Morales’ sequel to the groundbreaking CHICANA (1979), honors the achievements of five activist Latinas—labor organizer/farm worker leader Dolores Huerta, author/educator Elizabeth “Betita” Martinez, writer/playwright/educator Cherrie Moraga, civil rights advocate Alicia Escalante, and historian/writer Martha Cotera - and considers how these single mothers managed to be parents and effect broad-based social change at the same time.. Questions about reconciling competing demands are ones that highly acclaimed filmmaker Sylvia Morales, a working mother of two herself, pondered aloud as she prepared this documentary. Historical footage and recent interviews with each woman reveal their contributions to key struggles for Latino empowerment and other major movements of our time. Both they and their grown children thoughtfully explore the challenges, adaptations, rewards, and missteps involved in juggling dual roles. Scenes of Morales at work and at home, often humorously overlaid with her teenage daughter’s commentary, bring the dilemma up to date. Chicana continues to be used in classrooms more than thirty years after it was made; A CRUSHING LOVE is a memorable sequel which offers us indelible portraits of unforgettable women, including one of Morales herself
