Saint Hildegard von Bingen, The Unruly Mystic™
Discover why Saint Hildegard von Bingen is considered to be the patron saint of creativity, and about her continued impact today. This 12th-century abbess became famous as a Christian Mystic and visionary, as well as a musical composer and writer, and whose natural medicine is still practiced in Europe today.
Abbess. Artist. Composer. Healer. Visionary. Mystic.
Saint Hildegard is venerated around the world for her widely recognized impact on today’s theologians, artists, musicians, the medical profession, and educators. The film is an homage to her, but is also a call to all of us, to listen, to still ourselves and to heed the call of our souls and whatever unruly messages exist within. The filmmaker traveled internationally to capture many of the stories you will see in this beautifully visual, memorable and inspiring film. The film evokes a calling: that sweet spot of creativity that we all yearn to discover and utilize, an inherent desire, which is also deeply spiritual in nature.
An excellent documentary, full of Hildegard’s spirit!

It is our belief that a live screening of the film with an audience that can engage in conversation afterwards is more meaningful than watching the film alone. This has been realized with all our screenings, from Harvard Divinity School to local theatrical settings. Better yet, do a benefit screening like when we raised money for a Hildegard inspired comfort care home in Louisville, KY to a fundraiser for a Catholic parish church in Ohio, to a local GoFundMe fundraiser for a artist friend in our own town. The opportunities are endless when Saint Hildegard is put to work!
Saint Hildegard von Bingen is beloved in Germany, USA, UK, Spain and Japan.
The Unruly Mystic™ Saint Hildegard von Bingen is now internationally available around the world for screenings in multiple languages besides English.
