About the movie

Myths and legends know no borders. Travelling freely they tell us something basic, archetypal and universal about ourselves, something we all can relate to, something we all share no matter where we live and how different we are. No wonder mythical figures come alive in modern interpretations. Libussa, mythical heroine, whose story might have been inspired by the life of Matilde of Tuscany, lives a new life in the digital age also, thanks to spiritual seekers and contemporary artists. How can knowing Libussa enrich us? Why is this prophetess visionary and ruler over men still attracting fantasy lovers, feminists and neopagans?
