"Sit Down, Rise Up", D: Paul Daniel Torres, CI: Robin Johnston, CA 2017

Running time: 4’33”

Sit-Down, Rise Up. Is a musically charged film about unity through individuality and how important it is in the fight against the abuse of power. Inspired by the anthem scene in Casablanca, Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton and "The Get Down." The film is about a classroom in a dystopian world void of individuality ruled by an abusive teacher, who forces his students to drum the beat of a metronome on their desks. After one student is abused for being off beat, one student drums a different best in defiance rallying her fellow students to finally stand up for themselves.
