RISE (2018) is a short film by Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca. Set against the background of Toronto’s new subway extension that connects the city center to the peripheries, RISE follows a series poets and musicians – a group comprised mainly of young people, first and second-generation Canadians of African and Caribbean descent. Immersed in a culturally and socially complex, their words of empathy, loneliness and hope fill the tunnels, weaving a narrative of subversion and resistance.
