Hildegard von Bingen was truly a woman ahead of her time – a visionary in every sense of the word and a Christian mystic nun. In a staggering performance, Barbara Sukowa portrays von Bingen’s fierce determination to expand the responsibilities of women within her order. This 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. Directed By: Margarethe von Trotta Unrated, Runtime 110 min. In German with subtitles.
