The Occupy Love theatrical tour kicks off today with director Velcrow Ripper + producers Nova Ami and Ian Mackenzie, Found Love interactive director Nicole Sorochan, and special guests from the film. The tour stops in New York, LA, SF (SF After-Party – May 8- post-screening With fellow Evil Twin artist JEF STOTT), Santa Cruz, Seattle, and continues on to Canada, Europe and Japan this summer.
Occupy Love is a feature documentary that explores an era of rapidly evolving social change, from the Occupy Movement and Arab Spring to the European Summer, to indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands and the global climate justice movement. The film asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”
Director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) explores the idea that the paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst motivating people to create a new world that works for all life. Charles Eisenstein, Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin and bell hooks weigh in on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy.
