The Towers in the World • The World in the Towers

HIGHRISE explores vertical living in the global suburbs. It’s multi-year, many-media collaborative documentary experiment at the National Film Board of Canada, directed by Katerina Cizek, produced by Gerry Flahive. Over the years, HIGHRISE will generate many projects, including mixed media, interactive documentaries, mobile productions, live presentations, installations and films. Collectively, the projects will both shape and realize the HIGHRISE vision: to see how the documentary process can drive and participate in social innovation rather than just to document it; and to help re-invent what it means to be an urban species in the 21st century.

HIGHRISE‘s early projects are receiving international acclaim:  the 2011 International Digital Emmy for Non-Fiction, the 2010 Inaugural IDFA DocLab Award for Digital Storytelling, and the 2011 BakaForum Cross-Media Prize for Youth and Schools.
