Amine features a tapestry of voices that reveal the multi-faceted and complex experiences of Black womxn in the UK today. Featuring testimonies from Black womxn all over the country, the stories of family, friends, friends-of-friends, and acquaintances from varying backgrounds and age groups are intricately woven together. The film is formed from a series of unstructured and conversational kitchen table interviews about societal perceptions on Black womxn as racialised bodies. Through these conversations, the fragments of positive and negative encounters and experiences – and the rainbow of emotions expressed – create a story of vulnerability, pain and joy that is at once liberatory and heartbreaking.
