With This Light

During her 70 years as a Franciscan nun, Sister María Rosa Leggol helped more than 80,000 Honduran children escape abject poverty. Even into her 90s, as economic pressures intensified and gang violence threatened the very fabric of Honduran life, Sister never slowed down. Armed with a razor sharp wit and an unshakeable faith in God, she inspired and enlisted supporters in her fight to end childhood poverty through wide-ranging projects including homes, vocational schools and medical programs.


Miraflores Films first feature-length documentary film, With This Light, explores the remarkable life of a six-year-old orphan who, called by God, became a mother and grandmother to thousands of Honduras’s most vulnerable children.  Our award-winning team includes producer and co-director Nicole Bernardi-Reis (Radical Grace), co-director Laura Bermudez (Negra soy), and cinematographer Lisa Rinzler (Pope Francis: A Man of His Word).  Jessica Sarowitz is executive producer.
