JuLIEttE OF tHE HERbS Juliette of the Herbs is a beautifully filmed lyrical portrait of the life and work of Juliette de Bairacli Levy: world renowned herbalist, author, breeder of Afghan hounds, friend of the Gypsies, traveler in search of herbal wisdom and the pioneer of holistic veterinary medicine. For more than 70 years Juliette lived with the Gypsies, nomads and peasants of the world, learning the healing arts from these people who live close to nature. Born in England to an Egyptian mother and Turkish father, Juliette’s life story is as colorful and as exciting as her tremendous wealth of herbal knowledge. While an increasingly large number of people are explor- ing alternative means of medical therapy for themselves, how many are seeking holistic healers for their pets? Documentarian Tish Streeten introduces Juliette de Bairacli- Levy, a veterinarian who developed an interest in herbal medicine and went on to write best-selling books on herbalism and other natural healing techniques. These days, she applies her skills to treating animals through nat- ural, non-traditional means. Streeten offers an in-depth look at Juliette de Bairacli-Levy’s life, work, and research. Juliette of the Herbs received its premiere at the 1999 Boston Festival of Women’s Cinema.” ~ Mark Deming, Rovi 74 A DISTINCTIVE STYLE . COM PhoTogrAPhEr by UNClE PhooEy
