THE AWAKENING

by Walter UNGERER
2002 / color / sound / 1S / 9' 45




The film parallels the short treatise The Awakening of Faith by Asvaghosha which provides a comprehensive summary of the essentials of Mahayana Buddhism. That treatise discusses the question of how man can transcend his finite state and participate in the life of the infinite while still remaining in the midst of the phenomenal order.
All material was shot with a Sony VX2000 MiniDV camcorder and edited in a Macintosh G4 using the Media 100 editing software and Boris FX.
