“A must-see film” - The Montreal Gazette

The island of Jamaica gave birth to the worldwide cultural phenomenon of reggae. In a society where talent abounds and opportunity is scarce, three distinct and courageous musicians fight to rise up from obscurity for their chance at stardom. RiseUp follows these artists in the dangerous streets, back alleys, and crowded dance halls of Kingston and the countryside as they demonstrate the raw power of hope. Winner of the Music Documentary Award at Silverdocs Festival in Washington, RiseUp features music and appearances by legends Lee “Scratch” Perry, Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, and a slew of soon-to-be superstars.
