“… 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.

  • Film Summary:

    An adopted man, raised alone in New York and ignorant of the full complexity of his own paternity, meets his biological mother for the first time after his adopted mother dies. The documentary is narrated by the possessed diary of the artist.
