You Should Never Blink

Development of a feature-length film exploring the artistic life, teachings, and legacy of Sister Corita Kent (1918–86).

YOU SHOULD NEVER BLINK presents the rebellious life of nun, artist, and educator, Corita Kent, also known as Sister Corita (1918-1986). From a working poor family, Corita harnessed her creativity and faith to build a life as an artist. By the 1960s she was a cultural icon, gracing the cover of Newsweek and pioneering a socially-engaged art practice. But her contribution is too often overlooked, and she is at risk of being forgotten. Combining archival footage, interviews, and animated sequences that will bring newly digitized photographs by Corita to life, this documentary reinserts the joyful art and activism of Corita into the narrative. She still has so much to teach us.
