A documentary film by Kirsten Kelly & Katie Taber

A TRANSFORM FILMS PRODUCTION

 

The United States is experiencing a surge in hate crimes as a tide of white supremacy gathers momentum nationwide. Muslim and Jewish communities are particularly at risk. Stranger/Sister is the story of two ordinary women, one Muslim and one Jewish, who dare to believe they can join hands to stop the wave of hate. Overcoming a long history of distrust between their two religions, they build a movement that turns strangers into sisters, challenging our assumptions about how to fight hate in America. Intimately following women from Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom chapters in Austin, Chicago, and across the Nation, the Sisters build a powerful network of hope in a time of chaos and hate.

 

Filmed over the course of three years, Emmy-winning filmmakers, Kirsten Kelly and Katie Taber have worked with Sisters from across the nation to capture this powerful story. In Fall 2020, the film is launching a multi-year screenings and engagement campaign, working with an exciting list of partners such as The Pluralism Project at Harvard and Southern Poverty Law Center, among many others.

  • A recent survey from the Public Religion Research Institute and The Atlantic found that 1 in 5 Americans seldom or never interact with someone who 106 does not share their race or ethnicity (21%) or religion (22%).
  • Approximately 1 in 4 Americans seldom or never interact with someone who does not share their political party (23%), and 1 in 3 Americans say they seldom or never interact with someone who does not share their sexual orientation (31%).
  • Similarly, a vast majority of Americans believe the country is somewhat or very divided by a variety of factors, including race and ethnicity (83%), politics (91%) and religion (77%).
