SEATTLE, Washington (February 5, 2014) — The hard-hitting documentary ‘Take Back Your Power’ has been named winner of the AwareGuide Transformational Film of the Year. The crowdfunded film exposes in-home surveillance issues, customer billing corruption, potential health risks and other problems associated with utilites’ plans for upgrading to a centralized “smart” energy grid. It finished atop the list of 33 worldwide finalists along with ‘The Ghosts In Our Machine’, co-winner of the viewer’s choice award.

“This is a victory for a growing majority who want to restore sanity to the roles played by technology within utilities and government,” said Josh del Sol, producer and director of Take Back Your Power. “The issues unveiled in our film leave viewers rocked and inspired to see solutions. Winning this award means people are ready for a positive transformation.”

Take Back Your Power features interview footage from whistleblower Edward Snowden, former CIA Director James Woolsey, former British Columbia premier Bill Vander Zalm, public health investigator Blake Levitt, rights advocate lawyer James Turner, and other experts, doctors and environmentalists.

“The NSA spying programs are half of the story. We’re exposing the other half – and what can be done about it,” stated del Sol. “We have an amazing community of grassroots support worldwide, and have held more than 90 community screenings. Our aim is to work with grassroots campaigners in every city, and to have every public official see Take Back Your Power.”

“A transformational film,” according to AwareGuide founder and CEO Gary Tomchuk, “seeks to inspire the movement of society towards ideals, values and practices that create a better world for everyone. Take Back Your Power fulfills this purpose while bravely tackling a very big subject.”

‘Take Back Your Power’ is available to stream online and on DVD at www.takebackyourpower.net, where viewers can also request a community screening.

  • A huge THANK YOU Josh and all the crew and everyone involved FOR a job so well done!
    You earned it and the people needed to see what Smart,( really, really dumb) Meters are really all about.

    • From Josh: Gerard, thanks for this. This transformation is about each of us stepping fully onto our own playing fields, and confronting what we have, through collective inaction, allowed to violate our rights and threaten our very basis of freedom — until now. This time in history is all about drawing a line, and deciding what we stand for. May we each rise.
