    • Synopsis
    • During the day, Luis (14) walks over the building waste of a house wrecked by the chilean earthquake of 2010. By night, he sleeps in the same bed as his sister Ale (20), in a little and chaotic room that tries to contain their entire home.

      Some people destroy and sell the remains of the houses by piece, but Luis cleans it and tries to tight up the place. Back in their tiny room they hide their food, watch television and scape from the landlord who entertains Luis and harasses his sister.

      Meanwhile, the nation is revolutionized. On one side the strikes and social movements, on the other the government and the speeches of progress. The city moves and tries to arise, but they were left behind.

      With no money or opportunities, Ale decides to leave town behind his back. Luis will realice that the earthquake broke down something more that just the place where they grew up.

      Driven by rage Luis will try to get even by destroying the remains of their old house. Ale will help him.

      Under the rain, the brothers look at the city while they try to answer an unsolve question: how w ego back home.

      “Arise” tries to show a wall with holes. The face of Luis tells the story of many who have lost everything and that seems like they are always going to keep loosing. The story of whom the reconstruction has left behind and of those who can only watch from far away how the rest is trying to arise.
