In a world teetering on the edge of self-destruction, award-winning filmmaker Velcrow Ripper sets out on a unique pilgrimage. Visiting the ‘Ground Zeros’ of the planet, he asks if it’s possible to find hope in the darkest moments of human history. Ripper travels to the minefields of Cambodia; war-torn Afghanistan; the toxic wasteland of Bhopal; post 9/11 New York; Bosnia; Hiroshima; Israel and Palestine. This powerful documentary captures his five-year odyssey to discover if humanity can transform the ‘scared’ into the ‘sacred’. In each Ground Zero, he unearths unforgettable stories of survival, of ritual, resilience and recovery. Featuring an engaging, first-person narrative, this film is an exquisite portrait of a search for meaning in times of turmoil, a luminous gift to a world in shadows. We will watch the documentary, then reflect and discuss to process what we have heard and learned. Join us for an evening of challenge, inspiration, and sharing dreams for a better world.
