Pink Smoke Over the Vatican is a documentary film about the
controversial movement of women seeking to be ordained as
priests in the Roman Catholic Church.
On June 3, 2008, The Congregation for the Doctrine of the
Faith issued a sweeping order of excommunication for
“the crime of attempting sacred ordination of a woman.”
Pink Smoke Over the Vatican chronicles the
events that led up to this severe punishment
and tells the stories of the determined women
and men who, through the forbidden and
illicit path of female ordination, are working
to end the misogyny and outdated feudal
governance that is slowly destroying
the Roman Catholic Church.
