The parliament of Australia shall address the people. It’s time to rise.
Through a politically charged, fiercely feminist rap entwined with oestrogen and camouflage, Still I Rise is a music video environment harnessing female and Indigenous power.
Exploring forms of resistance practiced by women and First Nations people around the world, Hannah Brontë presents a formidable future Australia in which an Indigenous woman is Prime Minister, and parliament is entirely female.
Inviting audiences to expand their visions of what the future can hold, Brontë’s hyper-female universe of densely loaded visuals portray a government formed by strong women of all ages and ethnicities.
