Life is short, make it count.

This film is dedicated to all international activists who venture out into the world to stand in solidarity with the oppressed.

While teaching young students about the unreliability of western media's reporting on the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, finance major Mark Turner declares that the only way to really know what is happening in the Middle East is to go and see for yourself. After suffering the loss of a close friend, Mark decides to do just that; he sells his car, buys a video camera and leaves his home in Littleton, Colorado to learn firsthand about life in the Israeli-occupied territories of Palestine.

Ripples Cross is the astounding video record of Mark's journey into the heart of the Mid East conflict, where he and other activists confront Israeli troops at the Palestinian border, attend local rallies and protests, and are caught off-guard on a quiet city street when gunfire erupts all around them. This brave and audacious film testifies to one's ability to move boldly beyond traditional methods of political activism, while offering a call to anyone who dreams of actively working toward making our world a better place for all.

"I'm scared to death that I'm going to miss an opportunity to help people learn about this, and themselves." - Mark Turner
