AMA – a short film by Julie Gautier



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.”


Ama est un film sans parole qui raconte une histoire que chacun peut interpréter à sa manière, selon son propre vécu, tout est suggéré, rien n’est imposé. J’ai voulu mettre dans ce film ma plus grande douleur en ce monde. Pour qu’elle ne soit pas trop crue je l’ai enrobée de grâce. Pour qu’elle ne soit pas trop lourde je l’ai plongée dans l’eau. Je dédie ce film à toutes les femmes du monde.” Julie
