A Nun's New Habit: documentary by Robyn Hughan

A nun's new habit highlights the work of Sister Carmel Wauchope, from the Sisters of the Good Samaritan. Sister Carmel kicked off her habit some 20 years ago, but has now found a new habit at the forefront of the fight to help refugees incarcerated in detention centres.

Robyn, a member of our human rights group, is having great success with her film. It has been seen by audiences in the USA, Britain, Italy, the Vatican, India, Bangladesh and Malaysia as well as across Australia. It has won awards in Italy and Bangladesh. She has just returned from a visit to Tehran and hopes to return there later this year to begin work on a new documentary.
