"Sisters" is a Chapman University undergraduate thesis film directed by me, Mandy Jacobs, written by Leah Roach, and produced by Casey Donovan. The film is inspired by the true story of my great aunt and her wife, who met in a convent in the 1970s, as well as by the numerous accounts of other lesbian nuns and ex-nuns who have written about their experiences with faith, love, and "particular friendship". When putting together the crew for my thesis film, it was important to me to be inspired by the technical and artistic talents of the female filmmakers around me. Thus "Sisters" is written, directed, shot, edited, production designed, and sound designed by women, with a 95% female production crew.
