Fierce Light, a film by Velcro Ripper

Fierce Light

WHEN SPIRIT MEETS ACTION
Canada , 90 min, documentary
Director: Velcrow Ripper

SPECIAL EVENT with Director Velcrow Ripper! At Roberts Creek Hall.

Velcro Ripper, the director of "Fierce LIght" Acclaimed filmmaker Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred) takes an insightful look at change motivated by love, featuring interviews with spiritual activists Thich Nhat Hanh, Desmond Tutu, Daryl Hannah, Julia Butterfly Hill, and more. Fueled by the belief that "another world is possible," the film portrays stories of what Martin Luther King called "Love in Action," and Gandhi called "Soul Force"; what Ripper is calling "Fierce Light." It is the way of the Sacred Warrior, uncompromisingly nonviolent, with a power that radiates from the heart and outwards. It is that same grass roots spirit that swept Barack Obama into the White House, using the power of community--undeniably hopeful, and full of possibility.
