The Tenth Man have collaborated with directors GRIZZLY and a number of emerging cinematographers on a new short film ‘RISING’. Narrated by rising Irish artist Denise Chaila the film is an ode to the resilience and strength that bonds us together in turbulant times.
With an intense emotional energy, the film is a global portrait of intimate human moments of love, passion, connection and solitude set against a backdrop of jaw dropping landscapes. With contributions from cinematographers in Thailand, Iran, USA, Uganda, India, Russia, Germany, Ireland and more, it’s a stunning meditation on the power of the human spirit to overcome adversity. Featuring lunar sand-scapes, inner cities, haunting wildernesses,
underwater forests, deserted piers and desert dunes, the film also serves as a tribute to the beauty and fragility of our natural and manmade worlds, as well as the relentless resilience of
the human spirit.
In support of the release, GRIZZLY Directors Trev Whelan and Rua Meegan said, “In a time when the issues of the world would have us divided, we created this film to show what can be achieved when we work together. Our aim is to convey the beauty that surrounds us and the formidable power of human connection. The making of this piece embodied that core message; a team of creatives from all corners of the world along with their friends and families collaborating to craft an uplifting and beautiful film, despite the difficulties posed by a global pandemic.”
