WeRiseUp: Film Screening + Q&A

  • Diana Wortham Theatre 18 Biltmore Avenue Asheville, NC, 28801 United States (map)

*This event will be immediately followed by a Q&A session moderated by Doc Klein and featuring the film’s director, producer, and members of the WeRiseUp community.

Join us for this exclusive VIP screening, discussion, and reception for Connect Beyond Festival and Momentum Summit attendees. WeRiseUP is a culture-shifting documentary that presents a new model of success for the world. The film brings together some of the most brilliant, accomplished, and high-impact thought, social, political, and business leaders of our day, including the United Nations and key global leaders. Featuring His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Amina Mohammed (Secretary-Deputy of the United Nations), Blake Mycoskie (CEO, TOMS Shoes), Moby (Grammy Award-Winning Musician), John Mackey (CEO, Whole Foods Market), Dwight Howard (NBA All-Star), Luke Nosek (Co-Founder, PayPal), Charles Eisenstein (writer & speaker), and Prince Ea (filmmaker & activist), along with many others. Transitioning between intimate dialogue to cinematically stunning visuals and music-driven interstitials, this film is a radical departure from the expert-driven documentary, taking the audience into a personal journey of inquiry, reflection, and action. The film explores the movement to redefine a new model of success, which uplifts and empowers people to live radically fulfilled, purpose-driven lives. Attending the screening and Q&A will be Director Michael Shaun Conaway and Producers Alex Melnyk and Kate Maloney, along with other special guests from the film.
