Film: Janet Restino
FULL MOON/PEACE POEM, a plea for rivers of peace to permeate all people, for reflection, a prayer for peace.

Janet wrote FULL MOON PEACE POEM in Aug 2001. Years later, it was recorded live at St. John’s Church in West Village by Pamela Timmins. It gets more urgent as years go by. She encourages you to share the message.

Janet says: I’m not much different than a bee making honey, a spider spinning a web. I mine the psyche and the spirit to make art. I’m just a vessel at times – keeping myself in tune to participate in the act of creation, which feels truly divine.

Historical Woman Artist Honoree: Hildegard of Bingen (1098–1179) German Medieval intellectual and artist

She wrote The Divine Works of a Simple Man, The Meritorious Life, sixty-five hymns, a miracle play, and a long treatise of nine books on the different natures of trees, plants, animals, birds, fish, minerals, and metals. From an early age, she claimed to have visions. When the Papacy supported these claims by the headmistress, her position as an important intellectual was galvanized. The visions became part of one of her seminal works in 1142, Scivias (Know the Ways of the Lord), which consists of thirty-five visions relating and illustrating the history of salvation.

A Movement in Water, excerpt
“For more than the past fifteen years, I have been photographing and filming lush abstractions of water from Argentina to Zimbabwe, Bali to Bosnia to Botswana. A Movement in Water is an immersive traveling installation designed to shift your physiology and the way you look at water.”

Maxi Cohen is an artist and filmmaker. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Israel Museum, National Gallery of Canada and other museums and collection. Her films have played in movie theaters, film festivals and on television internationally.
