Our biggest screening to date, more than 1,000 people attended the screening of AWAKE at the Maui Film Festival, and votes from the enthusiastic crowd propelled the film to win the festival’s “Spirit in Cinema” Award.

From the festival website: “Using a seamless mix of re-creations and fascinating true footage, this very even-tempered documentary takes its audience all the way through a saint’s life, from his first sensations in the womb to that moment in 1952 when, having receited a poem to a large crowd at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, he exited his body, just like that….In between those events, he changed the Western World.”
