Thich Nhat Hanh
Fueled by the belief that another world is possible, acclaimed filmmaker Velcrow Ripper takes us on inspiring journey into what Martin Luther King called Love in Action, and Gandhi called Soul Force; what Ripper is calling Fierce Light. Illustrated by interviews with spiritual luminaries Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Thich Nhat Hanh; and activists including Alice Walker, and Julia Butterfly Hill - FIERCE LIGHT is a spiritual experience in itself, about the impact and the necessity of spiritual action in today's world. Written by
This movie is excellent. If you want to think about the world without sinking into hopelessness this is the movie you should see. Velcrow Ripper seems to be always at the right place and the right time, but more importantly, in this movie he brings to the crowds the leaders with cutting edge thinking for the future of this world. An army of amazing thinkers and simple ideas that will inspire you and leave you with a feeling of belonging. The content is charged with positive messages, conveyed in words, and strong images. Unique moments stolen; I felt so privileged to take a peak in the past, when these events were happening, moments that I would have never been part of.
This documentary is abundant with information and insight, and above everything, a clear, strong vision of possibility-when spirit meets action.
