Keep Hope is a short film that investigates the story behind an appearance. Born from the moment when meeting a stranger called Tamarah. This interaction left us with the feeling that there was a deeper layer to this person which we were not really able to grasp. Attracted to this depth, we decided to create this film, that is solely based on curiosity and intuition.




We are deeply humbled by the strength of Tamarah, who was willing to speak openly about her past and showing us her skin. Both entwined to tell the same story. Growing up with religion in a strong religious environment, her (sexual) identity and the quest of finding a place in this world close to herself.
