In April 1988, the Anthonian published an article (“A Hunger for Justice”) on the life of the Catholic Worker Movement’s founder, Dorothy Day. A New York businesswoman, Claudia Larson, was so moved by the Anthonianaccount of Dorothy’s life that she decided to make Dorothy’s life better known.
Although Claudia had no experience with the movie business, she dedicated all her efforts and energies to produce a film documentary on Dorothy. The task took 18 years, but Claudia, who has since moved to Los Angeles, completed her task.
Dorothy Day: Don’t Call Me a Saint will be shown at New York theaters as part of the TriBeCa annual film festival (a Robert De Niro project) beginning April 29. The 57-minute documentary will be shown as follows:
