Nancy Tong is excited to share her film, Trailblazers in Habits, with this year’s festival. “This film is about a group of amazing women, American Catholic nuns, who devoted their lives to missionary work, traveling to Hong Kong, El Salvador, and Africa with the mission to educate. I was actually educated by them,” says Tong. “I am excited for Sarasota to learn how these women spent an entire lifetime serving people, and to witness the incredible peace and serenity they carry about themselves today with the most amazing sense of humor. That is what a lifetime of serving people will bring you. I hope this film inspires the audience to look at themselves and how they could possibly serve their beautiful community, and serve society.”
Trailblazers in Habits will show Monday, April 8 at 1:00 pm in theater 9 at Hollywood 20.
