Join Vancouver, BC, filmmaker Velcrow Ripper (SCARED SACRED, FIERCE LIGHT) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?” Ripper connects the dots in our era of rapidly evolving social change, juxtaposing captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian revolution, Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, climate justice movement, and beyond. Featuring some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, bell hooks, and Charles Eisenstein. “What the film shows, triumphantly, is that love can unite as much as greed can divide.”—Vancouver Film Festival.
