Synopsis for the movie I Rise

The directors Véronique and Gabrielle Côté bring together twenty young actors and actresses in the laboratory to create a collective work for one of the great national theaters. For a full year, they search for contemporary Québec poetry with the aim of extracting from it the “spirit of the times”. In the workshop as in the four corners of the territory, we are witnessing the birth process of the lift. What people will we be in the future? What can art do to transform the world? Can we still have children? Insurgents, inhabited by the fervor of those who dream of beauty, obeying only their intuition, erect an ode to life. And when – spin! – one of them is elected to the National Assembly of Quebec, poetry is literally involved in the political life of the country.
