Synopsis

A film shrouded in mystery, spanning over six years of production in 35 countries (including Estonia), it is a daring technological feat and an immersive journey through human cultures and natural landscapes, studying man’s relationship with technology and the natural world. Director Tom Lowe, who has served as second-unit director for mentors Terrence Malick on Voyage of Time and Godfrey Reggio on Visitors, both of who served as executive producers of this film, has succeeded in creating a sweeping, grandiose cinematic feast that pushes the boundaries of existing cinematic genres, seeking to create a perfect harmony between movement, picture and sound. 

Using never before shots like aerial timelapses and creating new motion-controlled robotics and camera rigs during the process, "Awaken" documents the planet, the human cultures and their activities in all their various colorful forms, singing an ode to the diversity of mankind and the living world. It is a love story bordering near abstraction, a grand spectacle of the world and its people in motion, awe-inspiring, vivid and utterly beautiful.
