Documentary film on artist Meinrad Craighead available

Meinrad Craighead: Praying with Images is an hour-long documentary offering an introduction to the lifelong pilgrimage of New Mexico religious artist and former Benedictine sister, Meinrad Craighead, and her mystical encounters with the divine feminine.

It’s an amazingly rich film, filled with Meinrad’s work, interviews with both her and friends and fellow artists.

The film was produced by Amy Kellum of the Resource Center for Women and Ministry in the South, in Durham. N.C.

To order a DVD or see a preview of the film, go to
