Event Originally produced by Zeitgeist Films in 2009.
Summary Hildegard von Bingen was truly a woman ahead of her time. A visionary in every sense of the word, this famed 12th-century Benedictine nun was a Christian mystic, composer, philosopher, playwright, poet, naturalist, scientist, physician, herbalist and ecological activist. In a staggering performance, Barbara Sukowa portrays von Bingen’s fierce determination to expand the responsibilities of women within the order, even as she fends off outrage from some in the Church over the visions she claims to receive from God. Lushly shot in the original medieval cloisters of the fairytale-like German countryside, VISION is a profoundly inspirational portrait of a woman who has emerged from the shadows of history as a forward-thinking and iconoclastic pioneer of faith, change and enlightenment. Official Selection at the **Telluride Film Festival.** and the **Toronto International Film Festival.** *"...von Trotta accords Hildegard the respect of a proto-feminist forebear and frames her in golden light like a Vermeer painting." - Joe Williams, **St. Louis Post-Dispatch***
