Vision: From the life of Hildegard von Bingen

A film by Margarethe von Trotta
Starring Barbara Sukowa

“A magnetic performance.” —Jan Stuart, Screen Daily

A visionary in every sense of the word, famed 12th-century Benedictine nun Hildegard von Bingen was a Christian mystic, composer, philosopher, playwright, poet, naturalist, scientist, physician, herbalist and ecological activist. Star Barbara Sukowa portrays this extraordinary woman’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.
