Awaken is at it’s heart an experimental drama created by merging two short narratives, one by Corey Lee and the other by filmmaker Sandi Somers. Their combined efforts display two stories that run in parallel, with common characters and events, but from two unique perspectives. The filmmakers each built their own outlines based on an agreed upon setting and character backstories, but were not privy to the direction of each other’s work. The resulting short film was creating in the edit suite using elements from both filmmakers work.
Awaken was a co-production with Spring Street Films and was supported by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
