"Occupy Love" is a documentary film just being released by Velcrow Ripper, maker of "Scared Sacred" and "Fierce Light". His newest film looks at the Occupy movement and how it relates to citizens' movements worldwide. Velcrow's personally lent this advance copy of his movie in support of what's happening here on the Cortes.
We'll be setting up a digital projector, wall screen, and fire up the wood stove to get it a lot more cozy than it would have been outside. So, come to be inspired! Feel free to come early and stay late.

From the film's website:
Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper on a journey deep inside the global revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet.
From the Arab Spring to the European Summer, from the Occupy Movement to the global climate justice movement, 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. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is collapsing. Endless growth on a finite planet cannot be sustained. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound transformation: millions of people are deciding that enough is enough – the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.
Woven throughout the moving, action oriented backbone of the story, is a deep exploration of the heart of the movement, the meaning of love, and concrete examples of just what “another world” could look like, featuring some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy.
Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience that will leave audiences inspired.
