Interview with filmmaker Samuel Clements

During the 15th Anniversary of Sister Dorothy Stang's martyrdom, we would like to share video reflections on how her legacy is being lived out around the world. Samuel Clements from the movie, The Student, The Nun and The Amazon, shares his feelings on "seeking out the nun called Sister Dorothy."

Just as Sister Dorothy inspires us, she inspired Samuel Clements, a young man who produced the documentary, The Student, the Nun & The Amazon as a tribute to their friendship and her legacy. Watch as Samuel continues his reflection about their remarkable visit and how he is shaped by her words to "keep rowing upstream."

We hope you will continue to spread Sister Dorothy's legacy and see the impact she continues to make in this world. Please use the hashtag #DotStangLegacy to share your reflections on this modern day martyr.

In God's love, 



Sister Joan Krimm, SNDdeN
