TEDxSanMigueldeAllende - Mark Vicente - BRAVE LOVE

Author, speaker, and award-winning director Mark Vicente was part of the creative team behind the sleeper hit "What The Bleep Do We Know?!" (??Y t? qu? sabes!?). Several books have been written about the film's remarkable grassroots marketing campaign, which led to its unprecedented success.Mark was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1965. His first big break came as Director of Photography on the musical "Sarafina," starring Whoopi Goldberg. In 1992, he set his sights on Hollywood and shot his first studio picture for Disney entitled "Fatherhood," starring Patrick Swayze and Halle Berry. At the age of 26, he became one of the youngest cinematographers to shoot a big budget studio picture. Over the next 10 years, he went on to shoot an additional 14 feature films. At present, Mark is Executive Producer and Writer of the upcoming feature film "Bending Time", a sci-fi spy thriller and is slated to direct the political drama "Carbon Crimes" in 2011.Deeply moved by the unprecedented violence, taking place in Mexico, and perhaps because of the very obvious iniquities in his native South Africa -- Mark is currently in post production on Incendiar el Coraz?n , a film about non-violent protest movements who have been deeply affected by the fear of kidnapping, robbery and gang violence. This has taken Mark and his team from the lives of the wealthy... to the slums of Mexico... to the police struggling with violence... to kidnappers serving life terms in prison. All in an effort to understand this struggle from a humanitarian perspective rather the never-ending cycle of blaming others. What is the cause of un-ethical, anti-humanitarian behavior? And what internal changes would we need to make to change our world? , incendiarelcorazon.comAbout TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
