Inquiring Nuns


One Night Only! Tuesday, April 30! 

In the politically fraught climate of Chicago in 1968, two young nuns crisscross the city in order to ask strangers the question, "Are you happy?" The answers vary: "Happiness is the absence of fear," "Avoiding people," "Raspberries," "Joy in knowing Christ." They meet a lonely girl, a happy mother, young lovers, hippie musicians, a sociologist and even character actor Stepin Fetchit. The humor and sadness of these honest encounters lift the film beyond its conceit into a serious and moving inquiry into contemporary society and the circumstances under which people examine their lives.

While Gordon Quinn and Jerry Temaner's second film after Home For Life (1966) was a distinctly American response to the pioneering French documentary Chronicle of a Summer (1960), it had the added benefit of laying the groundwork for decades of Kartemquin films to come.

This film is a part of Hopewell Theater's ongoing series, The Art of Living Well, featuring inspiring films, speakers and interactive discussions exploring ways of cultivating serenity, meaning and a deeper connection to one’s self and the world.

Directed by Gordon Quinn and Gerald Temaner.
