Electronic Awakening is an ethnographic documentary film that investigates the spirituality of Electronic Music dance culture and its ties to ancient shamanic rituals. The film features dozens of experts, visionaries, and published authors who explore the premise that Electronic Music is spiritual technology that allows access to higher states of consciousness.

Filmed over a period of 5 years at events such as Burning Man, Earthdance, LoveFest, Moontribe, Wicked, Shambhala and the Boom Festival in Portugal. Electronic Awakening reviews rave's evolution from large-scale commercial events to smaller gatherings in remote locations. The film offers insight into the inner workings of the brain and its metaphysical connection to the repetitive beats that allow for that sense of oneness, unity and freedom that millions feel on the dance floor. It also investigates this culture's significance to the prophecies of 2012, how this bizarre and sacral relationship to electronic music has evolved the group over time, and where it all seems to be leading them.

With world-renowned artists such as Shpongle, The Crystal Method, Vibrasphere, Random Rab, Phuture Primitive, Androcell, Bird of Prey, Sheff, Jason Knight, Govinda, Gladkill, Goldrush, Desert Dwellers, Eastern Sun, Solar Fields, Grouch, Satsi and many more...
