Scared SacredStreaming Video - 2013
Can we be scared into the sacred? Can we take the trials of extreme historical situations and transform them into a force of awakening? Or will we succumb to groundlessness and fear? The film takes viewers on a journey to the pivotal ground zero sites of some of the darkest moments in human history: places like Bosnia, Wounded Knee, Auschwitz, Hiroshima, New York City, and Afghanistan. Award-winning filmmaker Velcrow Ripper confronts horror and heartbreak around the world and meets those who have suffered firsthand. This unflinching documentary captures a five-year odyssey and deftly weaves together haunting and luminous footage with words, memories, and an evocative soundscape to seek out stories of hope, transformation, and resistance.
