Raise My Hands

Elliot Kotek Director


    On Nelson Mandela's birthday, photographer Scott McDermott captured famous faces – e.g.

    Clint Eastwood, Robert DeNiro, Forest Whitaker and Morgan Freeman - raising hands to pledge to improve their planet.

    In Kelly's film, writer Elliot Kotek ponders the real-life and character experiences behind these simple digits - war, peace, violence, freedom, fame, disease - each represented in the lines made, in the hands we raise.

    A simple gesture.

    At the right moment.

    Can change the world.
