MAMI WATA is the all-powerful maritime goddess who keeps peace in the town of Iyi. But this harmony is suddenly threatened, and two sisters will react to external threats, to return the glory of the siren goddess to the earth.
A folk tale of fantastic cinema, an atavistic and sidereal story that, loaded with mystery, raises the conflicts of yesterday, today (and maybe tomorrow), on the African continent. With seductive, suggestive and evolving photography, MAMI WATA is a classic and futuristic adventure at the same time, a journey that discovers the folklore of West Africa, loaded with symbolism and with images that will accompany you after the screening.
