The documentary short “Ripple,” directed by Michael McCourt, charts the story of Rae Ripple, a welder, artist, author, and public speaker from the outskirts of West Texas. A survivor of abuse and a lifetime of struggle, Rae has found her calling transforming salvaged cars and neglected junkyard scraps into works of art and, in the process, finds healing from her traumatic past. “Ripple” is a portrait of resilience, unwavering strength, and survival in the face of tragedy.
