Pink Smoke Over the Vatican chronicles the difficult journey of women ordained as Catholic priests beginning with the early history of the church, to the seven women ordained on the Danube River in 2002, and provides a glimpse into the ministries of the courageous women ordained in Europe and North America over the last eight years.
The film has already won "Best Female Filmmaker" and "Best Faith-based Film" at the Action on Film International Film Festival and Best Documentary in the Santa Fe International Film Festival.
