Synopsis
Filmed in South India, Andhra Pradesh, at Rishi Valley School, founded by the 20th Century Indian thinker Jeddu Krishnamurti, AWARENESS explores the sensibilities of two groups of young Indian teenagers, a group of girls in their dormitory and a group of boys in theirs, as they live out their daily experiences at the school. The two groups were filmed separately by David and Judith MacDougall during their stay at the school over a period of several months.
