All over the world – Fierce Love Films announces the Global Community Screening launch of Occupy Love, a feature documentary from award-winning director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) that connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change and global crisis.
Community screenings begin April 11th around the world, including multiple cities in Australia, Brazil, Chile, New Zealand, England, Germany, Turkey, Bulgaria, France, Italy, Scotland, across the U.S. and Canada, with new screenings being added every day. This crowd sourced, social media driven approach to distribution is consistent with the theme of the film, which was also partially crowd funded through IndieGoGo and Kickstarter.

A profound shift is taking place: humanity is waking up to the fact that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. Join Velcrow 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?”
Featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, Indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, the climate justice movement, and beyond, Occupy Love shows that love can unite as much as greed can divide.
Occupy Love is the culmination of Ripper’s Fierce Love Trilogy which began with Scared Sacred, named one of Canada’s Top 10 movies of 2004, and winner of the 2005 Genie (Canadian Academy Award) for best feature documentary. It continued with 2008′s award winning Fierce Light: When Spirit Meets Action.
“Occupy Love is the movie I have been waiting to make, all my life,” says director Velcrow Ripper. “Today’s global awakening is what my earlier films have been anticipating and fostering – a current of potential that was pulsing and rumbling just below the surface. As the popular Occupy sign reads, The Beginning is Here.”
Featuring interviews from some of the world’s leading visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and social organization, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, bell hooks, Charles Eisenstein.
