With it's premiere at Outfest in 1997 THE CREAM WILL RISE proved that Sophie B. Hawkins is more than just a gorgeous pop star. Both musical genius and enchanting performer this singer/songwriter/iconoclast combines imaginative musicianship and rangy vocals with a captivating energy and raw seductiveness that have made her one of the most exciting musicians of the last decade. Since Sophie's fast rise to stardom in 1992 with the risque hit song "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" the artist hailed by critics as a modern-day Janis Joplin takes US on a turbulent journey of transformation and self-discovery that gives US a rare glimpse inside her emotionally complex world. Filmmaker Gigi Gaston brilliantly weaves Sophie's powerful and insightful music together with rare concert footage and intimate moments of revelation about her haunted past. A dark and inspiring moving portrait THE CREAM WILL RISE includes over 20 of Sophie's songs old and new as well as footage from her infamously erotic and provocative video that was ultimately banned by MTV.
