About

American Visionary: The Story of Barbara Marx Hubbard is a feature-length documentary directed by Karen Everett. The film is being released in 2017, and DVD pre-orders can be made through phyllis @ newdocediting dot com.

Humanity is on the brink of radical advancement, believes Barbara Marx Hubbard, who is known as the mother of conscious evolution. At 82, she seizes an opportunity to reach millions with her hopeful message.

Featuring authors Marianne Williamson, Jack Canfield, Neale Donald Walsch, and more than forty fellow visionaries, this inspiring documentary examines what a positive future might look like and how we could get there. Hubbard asks, “How can we drive through our global crises and blossom into a future that is equal to our human potential?”

The film also recounts Hubbard’s past, including her catalytic encounter with President Eisenhower and her astonishing bid for the U.S. Vice Presidency. In an age of dystopian visions, this loving tribute invites contemplation of an optimistic future—and the courage it takes to get there.
