Rise - The Siya Kolisi Story

Leaders are born out of many circumstances, including the need to grow up fast. Siya Kolisi had no other choice in the harsh challenges of his upbringing. Trials and tribulations gave way to a leader, and fittingly, the first Black captain of the South Africa national rugby union team. Hear from the man himself alongside family, friends, teammates, and more, as they weave together the grand tale of just who and what makes the Springboks legend so incomparable.

At times the life of Siya jumps off the screen like a fairy tale, with challenges external and internal paving the path for a success story that encapsulates perseverance. A singular story yet one that rings universal in its themes of overcoming, community, passion, and forgiveness. All this comes alongside stunning footage and intimate reveals from the Springboks’ quest to capture their record-tying third Rugby World Cup.––Casey Baron
