An animated documentary. An adopted man meets his biological mother for the first time. The story is told through the pages of the man’s possessed diary. The diary itself writes, un-writes, and re-writes visual memories in search of a stable identity.
Press Clipping from “The Daily”, Univ. of Washington (State) newspaper:
“… The prime example of a film about spirituality, that is not about god or religion, and the one shining moment of the entire film-festival was a tragically underrated animated/experimental short titled Momposition. It tells the story of a man meeting his biological mother for the first time. It is silent and magnificent… It is haunting. It, without discussing god or religion, brought to me a knowledgeable transformation, what Damah claims to attempt. Including films like these make me think that maybe there’s hope for this festival yet.“
