Her & Her

PG

Romance, Poetry, Music, Beatboxing, LGBTQ, Queer

Her & Her have been seeing each other for a few months now and are both very much in love. But they have just moved in to Her small one bedroom flat and of course she’s brought the dog! Suddenly Her home is their home and the realities of their differences come to full view. Different backgrounds, cultures, upbringings, rules. One uses poetry and the other music to tell their stories. Both British. Both women. One black. One white.

 
We follow them on their journey seeing just how their differences can compliment each other, what challenges they will need to overcome and how honest conversation and carefree dancing will always win in the end.
Part Poetry video. Part music video. This experimental short film is a lyrical and musical story told using poetry and beatboxing.
