"Let the people rise"
8 March 2008 | by Jamie3144See all my reviews

I recently(an hour ago) saw this short film among a compilation of other short films while attending the 32nd Cleveland International Film Festival. While the other shorts were all good, it was this one that stood out for me. Deface is a powerful and moving tale of a man who after losing everything realizes that the state of his country is not fine and he sets out to move others to action with his "defacing" of propaganda posters all throughout his small town. This, of course is punishable by death, but our main character refuses to give up. If you ever have the chance to catch this, do it, its really a great watch. "Let the people rise"
