Do you want answers to questions at the core of human fulfillment?  From "what is love?" to "what is the purpose of life?”, that's what filmmaker Sebastian Siegel sets out to uncover through interviews with influential thinkers, best selling authors, renowned artists and innovators.  In this acclaimed exploration, AWAKENING WORLD inspires interpersonal connection and reveals the requisites of personal responsibility necessary to perpetuate widespread human joy.

After 7 years of in-depth exploration of the human condition, 100 hours of interviews, and over 1,000 hours of dissecting these discussions, I discovered some patterns; answers as to what purpose, love, god and intimacy are. I funded every dollar of this film with only one agenda; to spread compassion and drive consciousness evolution - to bring people together. I hope you will enjoy, and perhaps even share it with someone.

With adventure,


"Dear Mr. Siegel, your commitment to sharing your film Awakening World with our incarcerated youths is inspiring. They were mesmerized by your characters, stories and insightful answers. You were able to project the positive and motivating passion of self-worth and purpose of being; strong characteristics we seek to teach as they attempt to re-enter communities. Thank you."
