The video Awake is an emotional reminder of the importance of taking care of our planet.
It shows that people don't always treat the planet with the respect it deserves. Instead, we have chosen to threaten the security of the earth through actions such as pollution, deforestation and overfishing.
A major impact of these measures is that they damage the environment and threaten the survival of many plant and animal species.

Another key observation of the film is its ability to appeal to viewers' emotions and make them think about the need for a course of action. The film's message is strong, but the editor (Sandor Poppinga) chooses to combine different cinematography and mise-en-scene techniques to create more impact on viewers. For example, different earth landscapes and pictures of different species in their natural habitat are included. Additionally, the script for the film includes powerful words to help viewers reflect on the importance of protecting their environment. For example, the reference to the earth as "Mother Earth" and a reminder that she has cared for humanity for millions of years without complaint. Therefore we must observe the limits of the earth and respect her as our mother.
The video also warns that if we continue on our current path, we risk irreparably damaging the Earth. Mother Earth declares that she will not remain silent forever and our actions could ultimately lead to our downfall.
We must take responsibility for our actions and make decisions that prioritize the health and well-being of the planet.
Overall, the video is a powerful reminder of the importance of taking care of the planet we call home. We must respect the earth and work together to find sustainable solutions that ensure the health and well-being of future generations.
As Mother Earth says, our last breath will be hers, and it is up to us to ensure it is not one of destruction and despair.
