Elijah Torok


What if the entertainment we watched could change the world? What if the entertainment we watched could change you? What if we could entertain change? All these questions are possible but it takes some Rebels with a Cause. At Rebels with a Cause we are young filmmaker/storytellers who will unite and partner with young rebels who want to make the world a more sustainable place, through people, planet, and prosperity. The inspiration comes behind the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. It wasn’t until goal number 17, Partnership for the goals, that I realized, through filmmaking, I can dip my hands into every other goal through my filmmaking and storytelling. The end goal is to create adventure films, with real drama and real life situations, that ignite ideas and action for positive change. At the same time promote the hidden stories of the rebels with a cause in the world.

A bit about Elijah

Elijah Genesis Torok is a young filmmaker and storyteller who grew up on the east coast in a town called Greenwich, Connecticut.  Even though Elijah was born in the states, he likes to call himself a Global Citizen, this is because of his many adventures and travels throughout the globe.  From the ice capped volcanoes of Riobamba, Ecuador, to the enormous spice markets of Mumbai, India, Elijah has much experiences with different cultures, environments, and people from all around the World.  In the summer of 2015, Elijah traveled to South Africa where he discovered his true love for filmmaking and storytelling.  “In the middle of the Kruger National Park, we ran into a rhinoceros with no horn.  In utter shock I heard the Safari guide telling us that they had to take of the horns to prevent poachers from killing the entire animal for it. Without knowledge, the camera was rolling in my hands, and by the end of that day, I knew that filmmaking would be my platform for telling powerful stories.” says Elijah.  In the following years, he did a lot of humanitarian work in places like Ecuador, where he and 17 others helped a community by building the structure for a little tortilla shop that was both sustainable and affordable.  Today, he continues to promote social change and humanitarians through his filmmaking, and continues to gain experience here at Watson.
