A pre-apocalyptic drama that looks at the climate crisis from the perspective of young Jonah as he navigates an unknown future threatened by an unprecedented climate event. The Rise is a modern day myth that speaks to the existential angst of our times and explores how the threat of environmental collapse weighs on the shoulders of our young people.
Director Angus Goozée’s filmmaking explores the environmental issues we are facing in a powerful and poetic way. He grew up on the Mornington Peninsula, Australia and graduated from Southern Cross University with Honours in Sustainability and Cultural Studies. Gus now lives in Byron Bay, NSW and is working on a screenplay for his first feature film, which he hopes will inspire custodianship for our planet and reverence for the natural world.
