VICE presents documentary film, Apocalypse, Man – an intimate portrayal of Michael C. Ruppert, a man convinced of the imminent collapse of the world and calling for drastic global change.
Ruppert became one of the most strident voices on climate change and government corruption after his forced leave from the LAPD following his claims of widespread CIA misconduct.
After featuring in the 2009 documentary, Collapse, Ruppert underwent something of a collapse himself, paying off his debts, leaving his friends behind, and moving to Colorado with his dog with a plan to commit suicide.
VICE travelled to the Rocky Mountains and found a man in the midst of a spiritual rebirth with renewed passion for his views on everything from fracking to farming, police control to population.
Ruppert’s eloquent call-to-arms is tempered with his interactions with friends and colleagues including shamans and yak farmers.
Directed by Andy Capper, Apocalypse, Man will roll out in multiple parts over the coming weeks, exclusively on VICE.com.
