Oh Mercy – Searching for Hope in the Promised Land

At the inspirational center of Oh Mercy is Catholic Sister Norma Pimentel, one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020. Sister Norma spends several days a week, each and every week, visiting with the people of Matamoros, Mexico and Brownsville, Texas– the children, the migrants, the NGO workers, the ICE and CBP officers– listening to their stories, acknowledging and embracing the reality of their lives, and affirming their humanity.

“Oh Mercy” is the first in a three-part series titled “Running to Stand Still” that focuses on global forced migration. The other two films will highlight migration from North Africa into Europe and the displacement of the Rohingya people from Myanmar to Bangladesh.
