Emma Goldman, the feminist anarchist once said “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be in your revolution.” Rise Up! follows Goldman’s words exactly. With interviews and performances, the film chronicles the struggles by members of a feminist performance group that combines art with activism. Two things matter to them: first, the body as the tool of expression against the patriarchy; second, the pleasures coming from that expression. It’s not the revolution any more if the women can’t dance. (Kim Sun-ah)
