The 2006 murder of friend and fellow media-activist Brad Will in
protest-torn Oaxaca, Mexico, is the impetus for Ripper’s journey,
which takes him to the flash points of spiritual activism around the
world, including Montgomery, Alabama; Robben Island, South Africa;
Andrah, India; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; and South Central Los
Angeles, where a months-long protest against the razing of a vital
community garden provides a highly dramatic spine for the wide-ranging
En route, Ripper encounters a number of eloquent icons, including
American Civil Rights legend Congressman John Lewis, actor turned
activist Daryl Hannah, Nobel prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu,
Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Alice Walker, Buddhist peace activist
monk Thich Nhat Hahn, famed tree sitter Julia Butterfly Hill, and
dharma punk, Noah Levine, South Central Farmers; Visionaries.
Ripper discovers what Paul Hawken (author “Blessed Unrest”) describes
as the largest global movement in history – thousands of individuals
and organizations connected by a shared commitment to compassionate,
Alice Walker calls it “a human sunrise” – Ripper calls it “Fierce
Light.” With stunning cinematography, a compelling soundtrack, and
dramatic stories of resistance and transformation, FIERCE LIGHT: When
Spirit Meets Action reveals what is possible when human beings, faced
with a world in crisis, rise to their absolute best.
