Directed by Gevorg Karensky, RISE is a short film inspired by the Rockstar produced Grand Theft Auto games – more specifically GTA IV and its protagonist Niko Bellic.

Speaking about the film creator Gevog says: “Grand Theft Auto: RISE is about the birth of an underground hero. He is not the hero that we are used to seeing. He is submerged in his own internal darkness. He is a protagonist. People will fall, things will break, he will be left standing alone in a tunnel with no light at the end.”
