ScaredSacred wins Genie Award for Best Feature Documentary!

UNWRAP THE DARKNESS. REVEAL THE LIGHT.


In a world teetering on the edge of self-destruction, award-winning filmmaker Velcrow Ripper sets out on a unique pilgrimage. Visiting the 'Ground Zeros' of the planet, he asks if it's possible to find hope in the darkest moments of human history.

ScaredSacred deftly weaves together stunning footage with haunting memories, inspirational stories, and an evocative soundscape. An exquisite portrait of a search for meaning in times of turmoil.

"Remarkably moving, strikingly beautiful and surprisingly hopeful...
Ripper's startling images of destruction and resiilience often arrive so unexpectedly that you're kept on the edge of your seat. The film looks at disputes without rhetoric, providing testimonials that will break your heart. But nothing that happens here will break the human spirit. Anyone who sees this movie will be the better for it."
David Spaner, The Province
