This documentary features two programs. First St. Clare of Assisi reveals the extraordinary life of St. Clare, a woman who reached the highest summits of Christian mysticism, who knew how to defend her decisions and who built a social reality that still challenges the centuries. Along with the medieval harmonies composed by Oscar-winning musicians, the exquisite photography explores all the sacred places in and around Assisi that characterize the life of Clare and that of St. Francis. The testimony of a Poor Clare in the 40-minute documentary, moreover, exemplifies the figure of Clare in today's world. The second program, included as a bonus is Poor Clares: A Hidden Presence. More than twenty thousand women today follow the example of Clare of Assisi in monasteries' scattered throughout the world - the cloistered convent, a city in prayer and a hidden presence with a love without reserve for all humanity. The Poor Clares present in this documentary speak of their realization as woman, mothers and sisters inside these closed walls of a monastery. 70 minutes,
