|“Hesburgh” is a documentary film that explores the life of Reverend Theodore Hesburgh, president of the University of Notre Dame. Directed by Patrick Creadon, this is the story of an inspirational leader who transcended all societal norms to bring people together from all walks of life around the world during the civil rights era. From his early years as a priest to his tenure as the president of the University of Notre Dame, Hesburgh became a leading voice in the civil rights movement, an advisor to several U.S. presidents, and a champion of social justice causes.
The film received critical acclaim and several awards, including the Best Documentary Feature award at the Heartland Film Festival and the Grand Jury Prize at the Nashville Film Festival. The documentary was also named a finalist for the Audience Choice Award at the 2018 Napa Valley Film Festival.
