What is consciousness? Is it in all living beings? Why are we predisposed for mystical experience? And what happens when we die?

AWARE follows six brilliant researchers approaching the mystery from radically different perspectives, opening as a science film but emerging beyond the explicable.

A Documentary by Frauke Sandig & Eric Black, 102 min., Germany / USA

AWARE is the second film in the Heart of Sky, Heart of Earth Trilogy.
