We are pleased to present Rising Glory, a special film produced to accompany the eponymous story for one of the five anniversary covers of the upcoming PETRIe 69: Extinction.

With photography by Jens Langkjaer, fashion by Fabio Merche, and starring singer-songwriter and model Rina Swayama, the story is a manifesto for the reclaiming of definitions of beauty; it breaks with conventions and calls for creative and artistic integrity. Hollow canons and rules for belonging are antiquated notions which will soon disappear. In their absence, we must write and live new categories, enact new stories, and come closer to our genuine selves.
