Rise

Brazil, USA, Canada / 2019, 20 min

In the underground spaces of the Toronto Transit Commission’s (TTC) new subway extension, a group of poets, rappers, singers, and musicians negotiate their status as both first- and second-generation Torontonians as well as settlers living on borrowed Indigenous land. Featuring participants from R.I.S.E. (Reaching Intelligent Souls Everywhere) EDUTAINMENT—an event that takes place weekly in Toronto’s suburban community centres—the film RISE adopts the concept of “Edutainment” as a tool for the film’s structure and script.
