FIERCE LIGHT HELD OVER AND EXPANDING!

Dear fierce friends:

Congratulations – we did it!!! Fierce Light is held over in Vancouver and Montreal, and expands to two screens in Toronto Friday! Thanks to all of you who've played a part in Fierce Light having an outstanding first weekend!

Now we need to build momentum, and prove to the cynics out there that a film about hope, compassion, and possibility is needed in this time of crisis. Let's crash the gates of the gatekeepers!

Audience responses have been absolutely tremendous-again and again we are hearing that the film has a transformative effect, that it stays with people for days, that it breaks open the heart and offers a direct experience of soul force, of fierce light.

The Q and As and panel sessions last weekend were so engaged and dynamic that we’re doing them again this weekend!

In Toronto - join us for Q&A with director Velcrow Ripper Friday and Saturday 7:30pm screening at Canada Square Cinema.

Also in Toronto, The First Weekend Club is presenting a special talkback session with Fierce Light visionaries Carly Stasko, Judy Rebick, producer Cher Hawrysh and director Velcrow Ripper at the 2pm screening Saturday, May 23, at the Carlton.

Spread the word on the web via faceboook, myspace, twitter, blogs, comments, and on-line reviews. Send the message out to your mailing lists, let people know wherever you can.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…

I entered the theater excited but having absolutely no idea what to expect. I left the theater feeling weightless, uplifted and motivated. – Hannah Ellizabeth

Your film shook me to the core. It resonated with something very deep inside me, and the strange thing is, I didn't even know that something was there. Sometimes you hear a song, you read a book or you see a movie, and the impact is so powerful, that your world will never be the same again and you'll see everything in a different light. These magic moments of awakening make life worth living and stay with you forever. ~ Joanna Fekecz


Two days later and still feeling Fierce Light percolating...filled with gratitude, hope, amazement, love. ~ Heather Elson

There are few films that are so complete that the edges disappear; that engage the entire body in viewing, and leave you palpably shifted. Fierce Light is a remarkable combination of all of these things. Art and heart.. - From IMDB


This movie changed me. It speaks to the urgency that spirit meet action NOW. Besides all that it is fine cinema: dramatic, beautiful, heart-warming, tragic, compelling, inspiring, funny, and entertaining. Go See It. - carla


I can't help but to take delight in seeing such visual and audio poetry showing such a thought-provoking and compelling personal story with global implications as this, made by a sound designer no less! –leslie Hayman


What a wonderful experience last night at Canada Screens!!! I cried again even though I have seen the film three times but it always is so emotionally riveting and touches me down deep . - Angel Hamilton


Fierce Light is raw, honest and inspiring. I was compelled and felt an inner heat that no other film has made me feel before. While some moments are heartbreaking this film inspires both hope and the course of action to make change. – alisha edgelow
