Film Information:
The Evolution is Love is a collection of short films woven together to explore the revolution of compassion in action that is taking place around the world, during the shooting of Fierce Love Films’ feature documentary Occupy Love (produced by Nova Ami, Ian MacKenzie and Velcrow Ripper). From the Arab Spring to the European Summer, from Occupy to the global sustainability movement, a profound shift is taking place: humanity is waking up to the fact that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm of greed and extreme concentration of wealth is collapsing. Endless growth on a finite planet cannot be sustained. 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.

Fierce Love Films is Nova Ami, Ian MacKenzie and Velcrow Ripper. We are committed to changing the world through cutting-edge films that inspire personal and global revolutions, producing films that entertain, enlighten and offer transformative perspectives on the world we live in through effective and innovative methods of storytelling, transforming movies into movements.
