Univerze (a short film)

UNIVERZE tells the story of ZE REBELLE, who felt she didn't belong on the planet she was from. As she was being captured by the authorities, a mysterious figure comes to her rescue. At once and to her relief, her life was never the same again. These metaphors portrayed are everything but a fantasy in Rebelle's personal journey as an artist. She is in fact taking a stance for all those like her, the outcasts and the odd ones out. Welcome to her univerze.

UNIVERZE, a short film, was released in support of ZE REBELLE's new album and single of the same title.

Director Statement

After working on this project night and day the past 18 months with paris-based producer DocOlv, happy to announce my new baby "UNIVERZE" is set for release on 8/8 ! ! !

Like my past 2 albums, it's been a very personal journey to get here. Where i cant speak my mind in real life, i speak with my heart thru music. And thru whatever other medium that's available, and i'm truly thankful for them or i'd lose my mind :)
