Silvia Kal is Part of the Star-Studded Cast of the Amazon Movie “Awareness”

AWARENESS is still one of the most watched films in Amazon Prime, and Silvia Kal is part of the star-studded cast of the movie.

Based in Los Angeles, Kal returned to her hometown, Madrid, to be a part of one of Amazon Prime’s most ambitious and successful productions: “AWARENESS.” This science fiction and action film, directed by Daniel Benmayor (Welcome to Eden, Xtreme), and produced by Federation Spain, managed to secure the number 1 spot worldwide on the streaming platform, and is still one of the most watched films on Amazon.

Fourteen years ago, Silvia Kal moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting in major Hollywood productions, but she didn’t hesitate to fly back to Madrid to participate in this ambitious project and work in her own language, Spanish.

The plot of “AWARENESS” revolves around a teenager with supernatural powers who lives with his father and uses his abilities to carry out small scams, creating visual illusions in unsuspecting victims. However, things take an unexpected turn when the protagonist’s powers spiral out of control in public, setting off a series of action-packed and science fiction events. The film boasts a cast that includes some of the most successful actors in Spain, including Carlos Scholz (Toy Boy), María Pedraza (Elite), Pedro Alonso (Money Heist), Oscar Jaenada (Luis Miguel), and Lela Loren (American Gods).

The movie blends elements of science fiction and action with an exciting plot.

In the past, Kal received the prestigious “Women Of The Year” award from Glamour Bulgaria magazine in the category “Actress to Watch”. This award proved to be an accurate prediction, as her involvement in “AWARENESS” has propelled her to worldwide attention. Woman of the Year awards honor “extraordinary and inspirational” women from a variety of fields, including entertainment, business, sports, music, science, medicine, education and politics. Silvia Kal felt extremely honored to be among these inspirational women she has always admired, such as Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, or Angelina Jolie. This gave her the opportunity of traveling to Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, a country Silvia immediately fell in love with. 

Spanish cinema has a rich history and has made significant contributions to the global film industry. It’s not just about the actors but also the directors, writers, and the overall storytelling that has captured international attention.

Some of the most recognized actors in the world are from Spain, such as Penelope Cruz or Javier Bardem, and they have certainly opened doors for their fellow Spanish actors. But in recent years, with the rise of streaming platforms, Spanish actors and productions have gained even more prominence worldwide. One of the most relevant international actors from Spain is Pedro Alonso, who portrays Vicente in AWARENESS, the father of the teenage kid who has supernatural powers. Alonso achieved global fame with the acclaimed Netflix show “Money Heist”. The immense popularity of his portrayal as Berlin in the TV series prompted Netflix to greenlight a spin-off, resulting in the creation of the show Berlin, which took Pedro to an even higher level.

“Money Heist” itself became a phenomenon, reaching audiences far beyond Spain and becoming one of Netflix’s most-watched series in the world. Its success has not only elevated the profiles of its cast but has also drawn attention to the quality and creativity of Spanish storytelling.

Beyond individual actors and specific shows, Spanish cinema as a whole continues to be celebrated for its unique perspectives, compelling narratives, and innovative filmmaking techniques. Directors like Pedro Almodóvar and Alejandro Amenábar have received global acclaim for their distinctive cinematic visions.

Spanish cinema also plays a significant role in promoting cultural exchange and understanding through its exploration of societal issues, historical events, and cultural identity.

“AWARENESS” is just one more evidence of the importance Spanish cinema is having all over the world.
