Overview

At a time when the environment is in severe crisis, the division between the rich and the poor is become more extreme than ever, and war is a grim fact of life in much of the world, the need for activists to stand up and try to show the world a better way is greater than ever. While progressive political groups and social workers are doing their part, leaders of the alternative spiritual movement are also bringing their voices to the cause, acknowledging that making a better world may begin within one's self but it can't and shouldn't stop there. Filmmaker Velcrow Ripper offers a look at the new wave in spiritual activism and the people who are using their voices and hearts to make a difference in the documentary Fierce Light: Where Spirit Meets Action. Featuring interviews with Bishop Desmond Tutu, environmental activist Julia Butterfly Hill, author Alice Walker, actress Daryl Hannah and Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh, Fierce Light was an official selection at the 2009 Palm Springs International Film Festival.
