WHEN SPIRIT MEETS ACTION
Canada , 90 min, documentary
Director: Velcrow Ripper
SPECIAL EVENT with Director Velcrow Ripper!
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.
