Fierce Light: When Spirit Meets Action

Fueled by the belief that another world is possible, acclaimed filmmaker Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred) takes us on a journey from Oaxaca to Quebec City, to the urban garden of South Central LA. Called "soul force" by Gandhi and "love in action" by Martin Luther King, spiritual activism's roots are examined in interviews with spiritual luminaries Thich Nhat Hahn and Desmond Tutu, and with activists including Alice Walker and Julia Butterfly Hill. Fierce Light reveals what is possible when human beings, faced with a world in crisis, rise to their absolute best.
