David LaChapelle United Kingdom, 2005

Dallas Kennedy's rating of the film Rize

Where there is no love, you make love. Being a light where darkness seems endless is exactly what the youth of South Central, L.A. did. Understanding the violence in their community, they did something about it and came together. This documentary is so enlightening and powerful, it teaches you to look past what you think you know. Crumping isn't textbook dancing and that's why you appreciate it. Its raw, it's real.
