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.

A Ray of Hope
13 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the world today documentaries are hot. Michael Moore and others have exposed moviegoers to society's and government's frightening mores. Although I applaud these filmmakers, most of their films have only added to my personal confusion and dismay at the world I find myself living in. Velcro Ripper's thought provoking film, SacreSacred, has done just the opposite. By exploring the stories of individuals who have dealt with some of the modern world's deepest tragedies Ripper has offered much more than your average political documentary. A path through life during these difficult times feels clarified by this brilliant, yet simple film. If you're sent reeling by the evening news and are looking for a film that offers hope, despite tragedy, I highly recommend this film.
