PREMIERING SOON ACROSS CANADA & THE WORLD - VELCROW'S NEWEST FILM 'OCCUPY LOVE'
EVERYONE (AND I MEAN EVERYONE)
From the Director of Scared Sacred
From the Producer of The Corporation
Fueled by the belief that "another world is possible," Fierce Light is a compelling, global journey into the world of spirit in action, an exploration of what Martin Luther King called "Love in Action," and Gandhi called "Soul Force"; what Ripper is calling "Fierce Light."
Acclaimed filmmaker Velcrow Ripper 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.
This film really speaks to people and is a powerful testimonial to our ability to "be the change" we are looking for.

Two days later and still feeling Fierce Light percolating...filled with gratitude, hope, amazement, love. ~ Heather Elson
There are few films that are so complete that the edges disappear; that engage the entire body in viewing, and leave you palpably shifted. Fierce Light is a remarkable combination of all of these things. Art and heart.. - From IMDB
