1967: two nuns stand on Chicago street corners asking passersby, ‘Are you happy?’
Powerful and disarming in its simplicity, their responses range from bemused, to amusing, to spiritual, to searching.
Newly restored and featuring music by Philip Glass, Inquiring Nuns is a brilliant time capsule of what was on America’s mind in 1967 (especially the Vietnam war) but also a thought-provoking documentary milestone that deserves to be better seen.
These screenings are to be followed by a Skype Q&A with director Gordon Quinn and a panel discussion with artists Amy Sharrocks and Madeleine Hodge, whose work features similar interventions into public life.
