Programme details

How can international disputes be resolved in the courtroom rather than on the battlefield? ALL RISE brings this complex question into sharp and personalized focus through the stories of seven passionate law students competing in the world’s largest moot court competition, the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. Hailing from Israel, Jamaica, Palestine, India, Russia, Singapore and Uganda, these law students have advanced through national competitions from a field of more than 2,000 students from nearly 90 countries to compete in the world championships in Washington, DC. Their hard work is put to the test, as they are grilled by volunteer judges from around the world, including sitting judges from the International Court of Justice, and we see them overcome unimaginable pressure to persevere in one of academia’s most rigorous competitions. Now in its 58th year, the Jessup is the common ground for a growing number of world leaders, high-ranking judges, international lawyers and human rights advocates. Coming from countries where governments may not be on speaking terms, or worse yet be at war, students who participate in the Jessup view each other and the world differently after sharing this life-changing experience.

Created by Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning filmmakers from Cinema Capital, ALL RISE lays bare the struggles, triumphs and transformations these students experience throughout their journeys.

ALL RISE has been selected by DOC NYC, the Manchester Film Festival, where it received a Jury Award, and most recently by the United Nations Association Film Festival in California. It has also been selected for the American Film Showcase.
