We Rise

October 6, 2016

A mini-documentary about the rock band Delta Seven will be played in Picturehouse Cinemas around the UK after winning a short film competition.

We Rise tells the story of seven musicians with learning disabilities, who formed a group to express themselves and challenge stereotypes.

It was selected from more than 400 entries by a jury including Amy director Asif Kapadia; Bond producer Barbara Broccoli; and Gurinder Chadha, the director of Bend It Like Beckham.

The two-minute film, created by Rosie Baldwin and produced by McCann London, will be played before the main feature at Picturehouse venues across the UK throughout the year.

Nafisa Sayani reports.

You can watch We Rise in full on YouTube.
