On January 9th, 8pm Casket Cinema will present OCCUPY LOVE, the new documentary on the Occupy Movement by Canadian Filmmaker Velcrow Ripper. The movie is a rare indie media look inside the protest movement. It travels across the globe visiting Occupy sites to ask the question “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”. The film makes out of the box connections the Occupy Movement shares with the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain with the Indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, the climate justice movement, and beyond. Local Occupy spokesman, Osha Karow, will be present afterwards to talk with Mark Wojahn and other special guests. The Q&A of Casket Cinema takes the mission in the movie farther. We believe in sitting down and talking about issues is part of our responsibility as citizens. We see it as a prelude to action. Petitions and a sign up for local organization who address this issue will be present for each attendee to fill out.
It promises to be an outstanding evening. The film is available at:http://occupylove.org
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.
