"The story of beginning"
A film by Rafal Mielczarek
The story of beginning is a short film created by Rafal Mielczarek in collaboration with Karolina Mielczarek, Laura Kukkanen and Renzo Spiteri (orignal music). It 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 the seasons go by from spring to autumn, she morphs herself 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. Also, it seeks to find a new point of view on life and what we are living for.
This project highlights a therapeutic value of art which is to experience the spirit of time which inspires, heals and awakens the forgotten truths.
