Scared Sacred
Find out precisely how humans have learned to transform the devastating into the divine as filmmaker Velcrow Ripper travels to the sights of the world's greatest tragedies to explore the healing process in an affecting documentary that ventures directly into the heart of hope. From Cambodia's killing fields to Bosnia, Hiroshima, and post-9/11 New York City, Ripper interviews people who lived through some of the world's greatest tragedies, yet continued to heal and grow. These are the stories that will both inspire and restore faith in the human spirit, all told against a visually stunning backdrop that draws the viewer in while providing a poignant visual reference to these tragic yet miraculous tales of rebirth. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
