“One act of courage can change the world.” -Starhawk
How do you re-vision the future that takes us from the dark road of the ecological disaster we’ve been on, not to a yellow brick road, but into true possibility. The novel by Starhawk, The Fifth Sacred Thing, is one such vision, and now it is being made into a movie. Currently in pre-production, in order to take the next step and make it into a film, they are using kickstarter to raise funds. This is truly a grass roots effort. You can give as little as $1, with rewards starting at $5. The deadline is August 21st. Read more about it on kickstarter.
The Fifth Sacred Thing is being developed by San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Films and produced by Starhawk (Permaculture: The Growing Edge), Philip “Mouse” Wood (Carma), and Paradox Pollack (Thor, I Am Legend) with the assistance of many wonderfully vibrant artists, musicians, friends and supporters.
The Fifth Sacred Thing is set in 2048, where an ecotopian San Francisco defends itself from invaders using nonviolence and magic. To learn more about it, check out the movie below. It might take a minute to load.
