The documentary includes over 15 years of photographs and videos of the life of Sr Clare, who was following an acting career when she felt a strong urge to give her life in service to God. The film also has interviews with her parents and close friends from her youth. The film is to be shown, free of charge at the Gasyard Centre on Tuesday August 14 at 7.30pm.
