The much-anticipated trailer for Tom Lowe’s Awaken has just dropped and it’s nothing short of a masterpiece. The documentary film was shot over five years in over 30 countries in order to explore humanity’s relationship with technology and the natural world.

Last night, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Price of Dubai, tweeted: “Explore our world with new eyes with AWAKEN, Dubai Film @DreamCoreTom

Given that Dubai is a dream for filmmakers looking to shoot time-lapse cinematography, it’s no wonder that it features so heavily in the trailer.

The finished product is a collaboration between Lowe’s company Dreamcore and Dubai Film.
