Be inspired by the U.S. premiere of “Herstory: The Visionary Life of Lydia Ruyle and the Banners of the Divine Feminine,” a new film by Dr. Isadora Leidenfrost, which honors the extraordinary life of Lydia Ruyle, a native of Greeley, Colorado. Presented in the Hensel Phelps Theatre, the film shows the colorful and heartwarming story of Ruyle, a scholar, author, professor, political activist, matriarch, and iconic artist. Whose mission was to share women’s herstories. At age 60, she began creating her Goddess Banners, which are visionary images of the Sacred Feminine drawn from all cultures. The collection grew from 18 banners to over 300, which she used to inspire, empower and teach others about women’s herstories, all over the world. The documentary also shows the incredible story of how her worldwide community came together, with less than 2 weeks’ notice, to celebrate her, to say goodbye to her, and to honor the passing of a matriarch. You’ll be blown away by herstory! The Saturday showing includes a post-event reception in the UCCC’s Two Rivers Lounge.
