Christie Herring

Christie Herring was a student at Stanford's film school when she made Bodies and Souls (2005). The film is a gentle day-in-the-life portrait of a nun, Sister Manette Durand, whose small health clinic serves the rural community of Jonestown, Mississippi. Herring touches on race, poverty, and religion while exploring the problems of delivering health care in underserved areas. A filmmaker statement and links to other resources can be found at the online journal, Southern Spaces.
