About the Movie

Rize is an intimate completely fresh portrayal of inner-city youth who have created art--and often family--where before there was none. Surrounded by drug addiction, gangs and impoverishment, they have developed a completely unique style of dance that evolves on a daily basis. Through tremendous spirit and creativity, they manage to rise above.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: LaChapelle reveals the captivating qualities of gritty street dancing, and his film is a touching story of hope, vitality and art rising from the bleakest conditions. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Rize is a compelling, bittersweet hybrid of a movie, one celebrating an enormous and hitherto unsung underground talent, while suggesting that art goes only so far in solving the enormous challenges of the underprivileged life. – Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: While the dance scenes are intoxicating, on-camera interviews with the participants are sobering. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010
