Ama is a beautiful and moving short film by director and free diver Julie Gautier. Please wait for it, from 45 seconds onwards you will be mesmerized.

In her own words: “Ama is a silent film. It tells a story everyone can interpret in their own way, based on their own experience. There is no imposition, only suggestions. I wanted to share my biggest pain in this life with this film. For this is not too crude, I covered it with grace. To make it not too heavy, I plunged it into the water. I dedicate this film to all the women of the world.”
