While editing the film Haywire, director Cheyne Lempe escaped to Kalymnos, Greece, to decompress. The process of editing made him relive a daunting ordeal and brought questions of risk, life, and safety to the forefront of his conscience. Awake in Me is an attempt to reevaluate and relearn how to move forward from such a traumatic experience. Follow more on Lempe's journey on his website here and Instagram here.
