An Achingly Beautiful Tribute To Our Strength

Wordless. Mesmerising. It’s a dance in the deepest waters. So exquisitely expressed, so utterly open to your own story, to the interpretation of your own pain, and your own healing.

Performed and directed by underwater filmmaker Julie Gautier, Ama is a sublime (and silent) short film in which she shares her biggest pain in life … and then wraps it in grace.

It’s her ode to the strength of women and I can’t help but watch it again, and again, and again.

It’s that beautiful.
