This is a teaser for a new movie coming out featuring Mike Ruppert
Apocalypse, Man - teaser
A lot of people’s first exposure to Michael C. Ruppert was with the 2009 documentary Collapse, directed by Chris Smith.
An ex-LAPD officer who left the force after claiming that the CIA were complicit in selling drugs across the US, Ruppert fast became one of the most original and strident voices to talk about climate change, government corruption, and peak oil, through his website, From the Wilderness.
One of VICE’s favorite films of the last 10 years, Collapse was lauded as one of the scariest documentaries about the world we live in and how fragile the state of our planet is.
Following the release of the movie, Ruppert’s personal world underwent something of a collapse itself and he paid off all his debts, left behind all his friends, and moved with his dog Rags to Colorado, with a plan to commit suicide.
VICE caught up with him amidst the epic beauty of the Rocky Mountains at the end of this year. We found a passionate man undergoing a spiritual rebirth with a whole new set of apocalyptic planet-threatening issues to talk about.
The film’s an intimate portrayal of a man convinced of the imminent collapse of the world, but with inspirational answers as to how the human spirit can survive the impending apocalypse.
The full-length documentary will premiere on VICE.com in January 2014.
Soundtrack by Sunn O))), the Flaming Lips, Interpol, Michael C. Ruppert, and more.
Directed by Andy Capper
