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. Staring directly into the face of war, tragedy and instability, Ripper travels to the minefields of Cambodia; war-torn Afghanistan; the toxic wasteland of Bhopal; post-9/11 New York; Bosnia; Hiroshima, Israel and Palestine. This unflinching documentary captures his five-year odyssey to discover if humanity can transform the 'scared' into the 'sacred'. 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. With an ... Written by Anonymous

ScaredSacred finds Hope, Beauty and Compassion in a Devastating Universal Reality
7 September 2005 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

ScaredSacred is a rare, beautiful, and emotionally and spiritually transforming film. It is a personal and spiritual journey, searching for light and hope amidst darkness and pain. That aside, it is beautifully filmed and edited, to tell a story of one's soul in search for understanding and redemption in its existence. The story is told as a mysterious tale and the cinematography is visually stunning and captivating.

It was personally touched by this film and it truly spoke to my heart. Having been raised in one of the "Ground Zero's" shown in the film, I found ScaredSacred surprisingly sincere and non-biased, and spiritually uplifting and transforming in a most positive and genuine way.

Velcrow Ripper's moving documentary film ScaredSacred is one of my favourite documentary films of all times.

A must see film!!!
