GLOBAL ONE NIGHT LIVE STREAMING EVENT ON
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10TH 7:30 PM EST/4:30 PM PST
Experience an ocean of consciousness with your audience
Area 23a, a leading event-based distribution company, announced today a partnership with Tricycle: The Buddhist Review and Umbrella Films for ONE NIGHT FOR CONSCIOUSNESS, a unique, global live stream event celebrating the award-winning documentary feature, AWARE: GLIMPSES OF CONSCIOUSNESS directed by Frauke Sandig and Eric Black, winner of the 1st Jury Prize at the 2021 Illuminate Film Festival.
What is consciousness? Is it in all living beings? Why are we predisposed for mystical experience? And what happens when we die? With haunting cinematography, AWARE follows six of the world’s most brilliant researchers approaching the most mysterious of enigmas, consciousness, from radically different perspectives, from within and without: through high-tech brain research and Eastern meditation, by scientifically exploring inner space through psychedelic substances and delving deep into the consciousness of plants. Scientists are arriving at new insights – some which have been integral to Indigenous knowledge for millenia.
“ONE NIGHT FOR CONSCIOUSNESS” brings a wide array of organizations and communities together to take a mind-blowing cinematic journey into the ocean of consciousness. By screening the film live across the globe, AWARE will establish a “collective connectedness” with the audience.
Afterward, the audience will participate in a post-screening cinematic forum, where, after contemplating consciousness for themselves, they will have the opportunity to learn how they are truly interconnected with all things.
