Film Night at the Hall: ‘Fierce Light‘ this Saturday, June 13th, 7:30pm

This week we have a real treat, we are hosting a pre-screening of the new film FIERCE LIGHT this Saturday, June 13th at 7:30pm (the film is currently in the theatres and not out on dvd until the fall).  This is a new film from BC native Velcrow Ripper.  Many of you may have attended our screening of Velcrow’s SCARED SACRED, a couple of years ago, it won many awards and brought a good crowd to the hall.
Fueled by the belief that another world is possible, acclaimed filmmaker Velcrow Ripper takes us on inspiring journey into what Martin Luther King called Love in Action, and Gandhi called Soul Force; what Ripper is calling Fierce Light. Illustrated by interviews with spiritual luminaries Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Thich Nhat Hanh; and activists including Alice Walker, and Julia Butterfly Hill – FIERCE LIGHT is a spiritual experience in itself, about the impact and the necessity of spiritual action in today’s world.
Fierce Light won best documentary at the Vancouver Film Festival and is getting rave reviews.  See you there!
