“The tunnels we have dug shall be visionary,” says poet Nasim Asgari. In Rise, the tunnels belong to a new subway line beneath Toronto’s suburbs. In the film, spaces are occupied by performances and by the sound of music and words by young rappers and poets from the collective Reaching Intelligent Souls Everywhere – R.I.S.E., composed of African descendants. Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca make a link between space and the diversity of voices and cultures within the Canadian city.
