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

Hope springs eternal
31 December 2006 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Long after the news cameras have turned away from some of recent history's "ground zeros", the effects are still present. Velcrow, brings these experiences back to us but not to dwell in the tragedies, rather to learn and celebrate the hope that springs from them. His intimate use of the camera allows us to see what is usually missed in mainstream media and his sincerity of the subject seems to transcend language and culture. His message is clear without being preachy or exploitive. The visuals and soundtrack create a moving sense of humanity that never stops and continues to flower

His compassion is what comes across and I look forward to the next two films in this (hopefully) trilogy.
