:: Spotlight :: Australian Premiere of "Rise"

By: Carmine Pascuzzi; photos by Matt Deller

RISE is an extraordinary film based upon the filmmaker’s true story. Mack Lindon was wrongfully charged with rape, and sentenced to six years in jail, of which he served close to two years. It’s a moving story of truth, redemption and forgiveness. Martin Sacks, Marty Rhone and newcomer Nathan Wilson are exceptional in their roles as prisoners who form a pivotal friendship.

Mack, his family, plus Nathan, Martin and Erin Connor were present in Melbourne to attend the Australian Premiere at Cinema Como. The film opens across Australia on November 6.
