Think Tank Cinema is back at The Arts Station this Tuesday and proud to present their latest thought provoking film, Occupy Love.

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness, or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening: 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.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, Indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, the climate justice movement, and more. Woven throughout the action-oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, as well as compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm.

Occupy Love features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and Charles Eisenstein.

Don’t miss the chance to experience this moving, transformative, and heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature visuals and rich soundscapes.

Occupy Love will play at 7 p.m. at The Arts Station on Tuesday. Entrance is by donation.
