Storyline

In Electronic Awakening, director Andrew Johner lifts the veil on an underground spiritual movement that has developed within electronic music cultures worldwide. This close encounter with the mysticism of rave questions the origin of religion, and offers insight into the future of man's spirituality. It investigates this culture's significance to the prophecies of 2012, and how this bizarre and sacral relationship to electronic music has evolved the group overtime, and where it seems to be leading them.

Great documentary on the roots of Electronic Music Culture
9 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

"Electronic Awakening" is an eye-opening documentary film that explores the phenomenon of Electronic Music Culture. I learned a lot about the culture's history and is a timely reminder that the root influence of the latest trending festivals are far from a 'new thing.' It's inspiring to see that the EDM scene has been focused on creating a community that's centered on unity through dance and music. It also explains the complexity of the music, whose purpose is to induce spiritual experiences. The film does a great job at breaking down the negative stereotypes fueled by media coverage during the '90s. Overall, people who are looking to learn about the culture should definitely watch this movie.
