Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed filmmaker Velcrow Ripper sets out to discover the power that is released when spirituality and activism meet. Sparked by what Gandhi called "soul force" and Martin Luther King called "love in action," Ripper spotlights remarkable individuals who are taking action from the heart. The film is the revelation of a new global movement of movements of positive, compassionate action. Fierce Light: When Spirit Meets Action illuminates what is possible when human beings are their absolute best...a human sunrise.

I've been watching a number of spiritually-based films lately, but this is the first one that actually made me tear up. It was very difficult observing what ultimately happened to the first community garden in south central LA, seeing the giant redwoods fall around Julia Butterfly Hill's redwood, and watching the police and military attack peaceful protesters. It's not easy being an activist fighting for a better world when so many in power don't agree with you.

The theme of this film is taking spirituality a step further--into the community--and working with others for peace/the environment/an end to bigotry, among many other worthy goals that most people have forgotten in their egotistical pursuit of materialism.

It once again brought to mind a much-quoted statement of the anthropologist Margaret Mead: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

This intimate comment on the nature of humanity - with warts! is personal and profound without being tiresome. Both Scared Sacred and Fierce Light offer something not often found in a film experience - wide eyed hope. The people whose lives are portrayed, including the famous, are action heroes in the right sense of the word. It is difficult to remain inert in light of their example. The young should see this film - it won't be wasted on them.

Part self-exploration by Velcrow Ripper, the director, and part exploration of activist events since 2000, this movie Fierce Light: When Spirit Meets Action is well worth watching AND owning. It's moving and profound, inspiring and informative...the best kind of "entertaining" pass-time for conscious or inquisitive beings. But it's beautifully shot and sounds great. And it's not a pass-time so much as it is an investment in awareness and self. Bravo Velcrow!

A very well done documentary about people and the spirit of making change through nonviolence. Should be shown to high school students. It might inspire them to do something more than play video games.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD is a documentary that follows several stories of human injustices all over the world, from The Farm incident in South Central Los Angeles, to the forced segregation of the Dalit (lower class) people of India. Velcrow Ripper brings to light these injustices as well as focusing on the courageous way that those who suffered through these events stood firm in their beliefs and rights as humans in a non-violent way.

The film features segments that include Thich Nhat Hanh, Desmond Tutu, Micheal Beckwith and a host of others that provide compelling and inspiring perspectives in their stories. Where most documentaries about activism that I have encountered solely focus on the negative, this film provides a positive aspect on the events covered through the people themselves. The Film itself is well done, balanced, objective and very entertaining. I would recommend this Film for any home library.

Fierce Light hits the deepest parts of our souls, voicing what so many of our hearts are aching to tell us. An extrodinary and extremely rare gift, if you are not changed, then it is not blood that runs through your veins.

It documented certain people who have stood up against oppression and went over spirituality what it is and how combined with action can cause tremendous change. I was hoping to hear a more well rounded view of spirituality especially pertaining to animal abuse/agriculture and it's destruction of the Earth and it's children. Also the personal changes that need to take place to make this world without violence. One cannot kill and rape others and expect to be free. This is not limited to humans as we are one in terms of spirituality. This is why we cannot get along.
