‘The Story of beginning’ is a short film which tells a story about life as a never-ending circle of birth, death and rebirth.
Il-Hajja (the life) is born out of the sea. She begins to develop and grow. She reaches the age of maturity transforming herself into L-Omm (the mother). As seasons go by from spring to autumn, she morphs her body into a majestic form, L-Omm Terribli (the witch). Ultimately, the Terrible Mother dies bringing the circle of life to its conclusion: the rebirth of new life.
The film’s goal is to present a different kind of reality through suppressing some stereotypes, e.g.: death and find fresh truth to remind ourselves what is truly important in life. This project highlights a therapeutic value of art: to experience the spirit of time which inspires, heals and awakens our imagination.
