In the Wake: A Record of Direct Action

In early November, after the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the direct action group Rise and Resist forms in order to act against threats to equality, justice, and human rights. As members of the group put themselves on the line in the form of civil disobedience, they also discover a new common identity in the changing and seemingly divisive Trump era. --- In the Wake: A Record of Direct Action is a vérité short documentary focusing on how marginalized populations organize to be heard. Focusing less on a 'boogeyman' and more on the power of collective activism, the film features members of the famous AIDS/HIV activist group ACT UP, as well as younger members.
