Scottish Rite Event Center to Screen Spiritual Documentary Wake Up

We drive past it on the I-8 every day, but who knew the Scottish Rite Event Hall had a 500-seat screening facility?

Obviously, Mueller College did. The group is sponsoring this Friday night's San Diego premiere of Wake Up, a spiritual documentary directed by Jonas Elrod and Chloe Crespi.

Elrod was just an average Joe who awoke one day to a different existence, abruptly endowed with the ability to see angels, demons, and ghosts as clearly as you or I do our hands. Doctors awarded him a clean bill of health and after a battalion of tests, no explanation for the phenomenon could be found.

The film follows Elrod and his ever-questioning girlfriend Mara as they cross America on a quest for inward peace and harmony. Once word gets out, Elrod becomes a walking freak show with people crawling out of the woodwork in need of spiritual advice. (Part of me was reminded of a true-life version of Biutiful.) Elrod consults religious teachers, scientists, mystics and spiritual healers to help provide an answer to why a 36-year-old man suddenly, and inexplicably, crossed over into The Twilight Zone.

The film screens this Friday night and will be followed by a Q&A.
