A journey to the Ground Zeroes of the world

Unwrap the darkness. Reveal the light.

How do humans find meaning in the face of overwhelming horror and tragedy? Is it possible to find hope in the darkest moments of history? Or will we succumb to fear, and spiritually paralyze ourselves from creating a brighter future? In this remarkable and uniquely optimistic documentary, award-winning filmmaker Velcrow Ripper sets out on an extraordinary five-year pilgrimage across the world to find answers.

During his odyssey, Ripper visits the "Ground Zeros" of the world: The killing fields of Cambodia, war-torn Afghanistan, the toxic wasteland of Bhopal, post-9/11 New York, Hiroshima and others. Interweaving stock footage with insightful interviews of people determined to heal themselves and those around them, the film becomes a remarkable testament to the human spirit as Ripper discovers the human potential to transform the "scared" into the "sacred."

Screened to great acclaim at film festivals around the world, Scared Sacred is a film not easily forgotten and a needed message of light in these difficult times.
