In the wake of the Arab Spring, four young Egyptian women directly address the camera. While the opti­mism of the revo­lu­tion dwin­dles ever further, ANA ANA - Arabic for I am myself’ — shows the courage and creativity of women looking for their iden­tity. How can they strike a balance between a free inner world and the loud, often threat­ening outside world? This poetic docu­men­tary is a tribute to self-fulfil­ment and freedom of expression.
