WeRiseUP, a social impact documentary that features world-renowned thought leaders and explores how we can come together to create a thriving future for all people and the planet, will be available for streaming globally on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Vimeo, with its digital release set for December 2021. WeRiseUP is distributed by 1091 Pictures.

WeRiseUP brings together many of the world's leading social, business, and political influencers to inspire viewers to create positive change in their lives and throughout the world. WeRiseUP features His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Amina J. Mohammed (Deputy Secretary-General, United Nations), John Mackey (CEO, Whole Foods Market), Moby (Grammy-winning musician), Dwight Howard (NBA All-Star), Richard Branson (founder, Virgin Group), Tony Robbins (speaker and author), Luke Nosek (co-founder, PayPal), along with many others. 

WeRiseUP launched in 2019 with private screenings and events at Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, NASA Langley Research Center, and during the World Economic Forum in Davos. The film had a highly successful festival run with a premiere at the Aspen Film Festival and awards at Sydney Indie Film Festival, AIFA Fest and Maui Film Festival. 

WeRiseUP was also invited by San Diego Unified School Districts, Park City School District, Aspen School District and other schools throughout the country to be screened by tens of thousands of students. The WeRiseUP film and teacher curriculum inspires students to bring their ideas into action and explore their role in creating a positive impact on the future of humanity.

"I am overjoyed that we can bring WeRiseUP to global audiences through these streaming services. Now, more than ever, the world needs the empowering and inspiring message of what WeRiseUP is all about," said WeRiseUP's director Michael Shaun Conaway. 

With the world in the midst of a tremendous period of transition, WeRiseUP curates an intimate inquiry to explore what it will take for humanity to Rise Up and come together to solve the planet's greatest challenges. Transitioning between penetrating dialogue and cinematic visuals accompanied by resonating music, this film is a radical departure from the expert-driven documentary into a profound personal journey of reflection, introspection, and action. 

Said WeRiseUP's producer Kate Maloney, "We are thrilled to be bringing WeRiseUP to a global audience as a film that champions innovation to create a more sustainable, equitable and resilient planet. WeRiseUP inspires and uplifts everyone to get connected, take action, and make a difference."
