Rise of Consciousness (trailer)


Directed by Clara Mouton et Cléophée Moser

All frames and sounds have been recorded in Palenque (Mexico) in December 2012.


In 2012, visual artists Cléophée Moser, Clara Mouton and Lukas Pfalzer travelled to Mexico to join the Rainbow Tribe and document their structure, politics, life & wishes and the preparation for the arrival of the 21/12/12.

This community or " tribe", as they like to be called, gathers individuals from all over the world who wish to experiment an alternative lifestyle to that of the city.
During those gatherings, the rainbows re-establish the link between man and nature and focus their attention towards the awakening of a new kind of consciousness within their members : " the consciousness of Earth".

Its through their rules, workshops, activities and exchanges that the community pursuits a life of harmony and balance between nature and all living creatures.

The documentary "Rise of Consciousness" explores how the Rainbows apply those principles, attempting to show a certain depiction of its participants through the poetic eyes of the film-makers.

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 23 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, feel free to get in touch!
