Velcrow Ripper is also a Canadian filmmaker. He has produced dozen of films, including “Scared Sacred”, which I loved it, where he visited the ‘Ground Zeros’ of the planet, asking himself if it’s possible to find some hope in the darkest moments of the history. He has also other films under his belt, like “Fierce light: when spirit meets action”, fueled by the belief that another world is possible; and the most recent documentary film, “Occupy Love”, where he tries to give an answer to the following question: how could the crisis we are facing become a love story?
He is also a public speaker, a cinematic activist, a writer (has so beautiful poems) and an evolutionary agent, and that’s what it makes him so special.
In 2014 we will rise up like never before.
We will rise up with compassion, action, and consciousness.
We will rise up rooted, like trees.
We will rise up connected, like mycorrhizzal fungi, a rhizome spreading, cracking, shattering the cold concrete of a consumer culture bent on self destruction.
We will turn the tides, correct the course, re-align, re-design, re-vamp, re-jig it all before the jig is up. Then we’ll dance a jig!
We will rise up symbiotic, interdependent and independent, free thinking and open hearted, throwing our mind body heart and spirit into service to the greatest good in this time of greatest crisis.
