Film Overview

Look at yourself in the mirror and recognize your double self, which flies like a butterfly from tree to tree, from country to country, without being destroyed.

The 62-minute experimental film flows like a river from which further animations challenge us. The intense film music speaks to us as instead of the forms and figures depicted in the film.

The content of the film concerns the current situation in the world with its social conflicts in connection with the natural disasters of our time.

The film title “Ma hama esti” is formulated in the Zazaki language, in Zaza, the mother tongue of many other languages, a language that is under threat.

Ma Hama esti means that we still exist.
