Storyline

In a world teetering on the edge of self destruction, award-winning filmmaker Velcrow Ripper sets out on a unique pilgrimmage. Visiting the 'Ground Zeros' of the planet, he asks if it's possible to find hope in the darkest moments of human history.

Confronting horror and heartbreak around the world, Ripper meets those who have suffered first-hand. And in each place, he unearths unforgettable stories of survival, ritual, and recovery. Scared Sacred deftly weaves together haunting and luminous footage with words, memories, and an evocative soundscape to create an exquisite portrait of a search for meaning in times of turmoil.

A wake up call for the complacent.
6 January 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Will this time in history be recorded as the beginning of the end for humanity? It's not impossible! History tells us so.

Our acceptance of greed, aggression and violence is unprecedented. So many children aren't even aware of an alternative to the hatred they are immersed in from birth.

Step back for a minute and think about Union Carbide's refusal to reveal the ingredients of their poison to the Doctors because it was a "trade secret". Now imagine it was your children dying, I dare you to take a few more minutes to think about it. Take your time.

Scared sacred allows you to make up your own mind while you to stare the monster right in the face.
