Coming all the way from Toronto, Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Bones of the Forest) unveils the new wave in spiritual activism—the people using their hearts and bodies to make a political difference. His feature doc includes interviews with Bishop Desmond Tutu, environmental activist Julia Butterfly Hill, author Alice Walker, actress Daryl Hannah, Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh, and dozens of others around the world. Leaders of the alternative spiritual movement bring their voices to the cause, acknowledging that making a better world may begin within one’s self, but it shouldn’t stop there. Opening the program are two of Velcrow’s short works: the US premiere of Revolution of the Spirit, featuring Aung San Suu Kyi (currently on trial in Burma), and Burn—Noam Chomsky meets Burning Man.
