FMTV - Juliette of the Herbs

Juliette of the Herbs

Runtime: 75m 56s | Release date: 1998

Juliette of the Herbs is a beautifully filmed lyrical portrait of the life and work of Juliette de Bairacli Levy: herbalist, author, breeder of Afghan hounds, a friend of the Gypsies, a traveller in search of herbal wisdom and pioneer of holistic veterinary medicine. Juliette’s well-loved and now classic herbals for animals and for children have been a vital inspiration for the present day herbal renaissance.

For more than 70 years Juliette lived with the Gypsies, nomads, and peasants of the world, learning the healing arts from these people who live close to nature, and learning from Nature herself. Juliette’s life story is as colorful and exciting as her tremendous wealth of herbal knowledge.

Filmed on location in Greece, Spain, France, Portugal, Switzerland, England and America, and interwoven with Juliette’s vast collection of archival photographs, together with scenes of Gypsies dancing and Bedouins with their herds, Juliette Of The Herbs is an inspiring portrait of a remarkable woman.

Such an inspiring woman and teacher, she has given so much over her lifetime and been an important voice for an otherwise lost knowledge of herbs and how nature can heal all of us. Her kindness and outrage at the impertinence of man is tangible. I feel her pain, but celebrate that we can continue her legacy. Thank you FMTV for sharing her story.
