Florida Women of Achievement will present the first in a series of films celebrating the lives and times of Florida’s exceptional leaders.
Portraits of Inspiration: The Power Nun will debut 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 19, at the Miracle Theatre in Coral Gables, 280 Miracle Mile.
The Film Series by Scherley Busch will feature guest of honor Sister Jeanne O’Laughlin.
The film takes you back through South Florida’s recent history, reliving the story of an educator, humanitarian, and unstoppable force, Sister Jeanne. The Power Nun drops you in the middle of the action as Sister Jeanne breaks down doors into the exclusively all-male boardrooms during the women’s movement, the website says.
Started in 1992, FWA’s photographic exhibitions and educational programs shine a light on Florida’s diverse history-making role models. Portraits of Inspiration, brings these powerful women to life through the big screen and electronic media to educate, inspire, and empower future generations, according to the website.
