"Rise Up" seeks answers to the devastating ecological, economic and authoritarian developments of our time together with five extraordinary political activists.
It is said that every social progress had to be fought for by courageous people - but how did they succeed? Can the enormous global crises of the present even be overcome? Driven by questions, doubts and visions, the film wanders through wild imagery, through the promises of happiness of modernity, freezes in the face of overpowering enemies, experiences resistance, failure and new beginnings. And we begin to understand - thanks to the inspiring stories of five people who were involved in overwhelming social upheavals. Together they struggle for answers with the film's authors and the audience.
With: Marco Heinig (filmmaker, freelance journalist), Sinem Taşan-Funke (regional chairwoman Jusos Berlin), Lina Johnsen (activist of the "Last Generation") Cooperation partner and location: Moviemento Kino, Kottbusser Damm 22 (U-Bhf. Schönleinstr.)
