Fierce Light opens this week in Vancouver

Off the top of my head, Velcrow Ripper is a Vancouver filmmaker who travels the world making documentaries about spiritual stuff. SCARED SACRED played the VIFF a few years ago, and this one opens in Vancouver this week. I don't know if it comes from the WHAT THE BLEEP DO WE KNOW end of the spectrum, or the Sojourners end of the spectrum, so let the popcorn buyer beware...

"Fueled by the belief that another world is possible, acclaimed filmmaker Velcrow Ripper takes us on inspiring journey into what Martin Luther King called Love in Action, and Gandhi called Soul Force; what Ripper is calling Fierce Light. Illustrated by interviews with spiritual luminaries Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Thich Nhat Hanh; and activists including Alice Walker, and Julia Butterfly Hill - FIERCE LIGHT is a spiritual experience in itself, about the impact and the necessity of spiritual action in today's world."
