The Unruly Mystic: John Muir

Feature documentary film, directed by Michael M. Conti (USA) 70 minutes.

John Muir Movie explores the remarkable life and influential works of a patron saint of environmental activism. The world’s environmental movement stands on the shoulders of a few great conservationists, especially John Muir, “Nature Apostle.”   The Unruly Mystic: John Muir is a personal and an inspirational journey.

Valuing our natural wild places for their transformational qualities, and encouraging everyone to deeply experience nature for its spiritual nourishment, The Unruly Mystic: John Muir Movie explores the remarkable life and influential works of a patron saint of environmental activism and Father of America’s National Parks. The filmmaker, though his own personal journey, entices people to appreciate nature’s beauty and to connect deeper to its abundance.


The Unruly Mystic: John Muir is currently available for theatrical and private screenings.  It is our experience that a theatrical screening of the film in a proper venue with good quality sound and projection with a live audience that can engage in conversation afterwards is more meaningful than watching the film alone.  After screening the film with community, I generally do a talk back afterwards, besides answering general questions about John Muir, there is also good discussion around spirituality.  People leave wanting to have more meaningful encounters with nature. Stay tuned for DVD and online sales.   Learn about licensing a public or private screening to your community.
