Occupy Love, the newest feature documentary by award-winning filmmaker and sound designer Velcrow Ripper, connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change. From the Arab Spring to the European Summer, from the Occupy Movement to the global climate justice movement, Occupy Love asks the question: how could the crisis of today become a love story?
Occupy Love is having its New York City premiere on Friday, May 3.
Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper on a journey deep inside the global revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet. Humanity is waking up to the fact that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. 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.
