Documentary Short

Radio Amina tells story of Amina Dibir, a 12 year old street hawker from Kano, Nigeria and her imaginary radio show where she gets to say all of the things she wishes she could in real life.

Part documentary, part scripted, this beautifully shot hybrid film explores the wishes and desires of a girl who has scant opportunity to tell anyone about her hopes for the future and her frustrations at the lack of opportunities in her life.

The film was made for Girl Hub and to find out more about some of the issues at the heart of the film visit
