Get Up, Stand Up (Emeraudian Creole: Leve-Twa, Leve-Twa) (Gaullican: Lève-toi, Lève-toi) is a 2022 Emeraudian historical drama that was filmed and released in the year 2022. It was directed by Ruth Milord, produced by Nwabisa Marcelin and Vivienne Manaudou, and written by Nwabisa Marcelin and Edna Blaise. The film is based on the true events of the 1984 Attacks against Mufastis, also known among followers of the Mufasti faith as the Great Suffering, which occured in the aftermath of randé musician and Mufasti icon Robin Gautier's death, and follows a young Nwabisa Lucien (later Marcelin) and her parents as they navigate through the period. While her parents wanted to flee their home to find a safe space, the young Nwabisa is determined to stand her ground against the attackers, and motivates the rest of her Mufasti community to do so. The film is set to premiere at the 83rd Montecara Film Festival on October 24, 2022, and will be internationally released on November 4, 2022.
