It’s a slow movie week but this M. Night Shyamalan video for Andra Day’s inspirational song, “Rise Up” deserves all the views it can get!
Already a huge fan of this song and this artist, the addition of a very subtle but powerful video from Shyamalan who usually has a flair for spectacle. The only Shyamalan calling card is location as it looks like the video was filmed in Media, Pennsylvania. (From the area, I recognize the store fronts in one of the scenes.)
Without the video, the song is already moving. With the video, it’s even more beautiful, gripping and emotional. I have to go now. There’s something in my eye.
