Berrigans: Devout and Dangerous
(DIRECTOR: Susan Hagedorn)
Devout and Dangerous is the story of an American family who is on the FBI’s Most Wanted List in 1970 for their opposition to the Vietnam War and continues resisting for the next half century. The Berrigans take on the Catholic Church and the United States government at the peril of their freedom, families and reputation, all for the sake of peace and faith. They sacrificed everything—defying the church they held so dear, spending years of their lives in prison, and parenting from behind bars—to demonstrate the true fundamentals of Christianity: peace, equality and the guts to tell the truth.
