\this is how i feel when i play at the bottom of the ocean or in a pool
\that feeling of weightlessness, of freedom; to be transported into another world, one with different rules, rules that are foreign
\a world where you can be completely alone; sound distorted, images blurred
\stripped back to your most basic need: breath.
\breath: one of many things we take for granted, but take it away and there is nothing
\we all want freedom, and this is perhaps the closest we may ever get to absolute freedom, if for only a moment
\a moment without air is a lifetime disappeared
this freedom, adapting to new rules, it is absolute joy and one i have been lucky to experience throughout my life living on the coast, and this video captures the beauty of this feeling in such an incredible way.
JULIE: “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.” Julie
