"Scared Sacred" is a film by Canadian filmmaker, Velcrow Ripper, and winner of the Special Jury prize at the 2004 Toronto Film Festival.
Ripper visited the "Ground Zeros" of the World... Cambodia's "Killing Fields", Hiroshima, Bhopal..... in search of meaning in the World's atrocities. He finds, often Serendipitously, answers to questions he didn't know he was asking.
In Hiroshima, he meets a survivor who tells him of how, for the first years after the bombings, survivors were forbidden from telling their stories and treated as lepers. She tells her story, now, in a quest to give healing to others.
In Bhopal, he visits a holistic medicine clinic which "asserts the right of the expendable to live."
In Cambodia, he meets Aki Ra whom using only a simple stick, has to date decommissioned over 10,000 land mines, on his own, without a metal detector or shield.
Unfortunately, the "Scared Sacred" website doesn't seem to be up and running at the moment, but keep trying. I am sure it is worth visiting. See the film.....
