Revolution Of The Heart: The Dorothy Day Story


Revolution of The Heart: The Dorothy Day Story is the second installment of the documentary film series on Prophetic Voices of the 20th Century. A film by Martin Doblmeier. It begins airing on Public Television in March 2020.

This film profiles one of the most extraordinary and courageous women in American history. She was co-founder (along with Peter Maurin) of the Catholic Worker Movement that began as a newspaper to expose rampant injustices during the Great Depression. It soon expanded to become a network of houses of hospitality to welcome the poor and destitute. Over the years, Dorothy Day developed her understanding of how to follow the Biblical challenge to be “peacemakers” by resisting all forms of military intervention. She protested America’s involvement in World War II and was severely criticized. Day was arrested multiple times for protesting America’s nuclear buildup and she led nationwide resistance against the war in Vietnam.
