“The film was incredible… was up at 3am the next day thinking and feeling… and had rich conversations with some young neighbours about it today. Just watching the movie was the kind of experience that will keep unfolding goodness and provoking action… “~ Jane Finton, Whitehorse Yukon

“Saw the movie Occupy Love and was wildly inspired, my ecstatic propulsion engines all fueled up. It’s a visually gorgeous film that looks at how our current economic and ecological crisis is the Greatest Love Story on Earth. “The Economist says more for you means less for me. The Lover knows more for you means more for me.  Velcrow Ripper – I am cheering you on. Great job!  I’m a sucker for a kick-ass soundtrack too.” ~ Gennie Brukner, Toronto
