Product Description:

Awake, My Soul is the first feature documentary about Sacred Harp singing, a haunting form of a cappella shape note hymn singing with deep roots in the American South. Shape note singing has survived for over 200 years in the rural Deep South, where singers break open a 160-yearold hymnal that has preserved these fiercely beautiful songs. The film offers a glimpse into the lives of this Lost Tonal Tribe, whose history is a story of rebellion and tradition. This special edition includes the original documentary as seen on American public television as well as interviews, deleted scenes, and commentary by stars and filmmakers-over 5 hours of bonus features in all. Has been featured by TIME, Paste, NPR, XM Satellite Radio,
and many newspapers and magazines.
