Re-Discovering Mary Magdalene

Producers and Narrators: Lila Sophia and David Tresemer

Mary Magdalene

Who was she? Prostitute or Priestess? Strong and independent women often feel there is no place for them at the table of western religion. What would it mean to our culture if Mary Magdalene emerged as a model of courage, wisdom, and partnership? Take a journey of remembrance, to the roots of the Sacred Feminine in western culture. This presents research on Mary Magdalene with visuals of several places where she might have been (southern France, Israel), and follows a group of actors preparing to present a play about her, the play My Magdalene by Lila Sophia and David Tresemer.
