Her & Her
Running time: 13 minutes approx
Her & Her have been seeing each other for a few months now and are both very much in love. They have recently moved into Her small, one-bedroom flat and of course, she has brought the dog.
Suddenly Her home is their home and the realities of their differences come into full view. Backgrounds, cultures, upbringings, rules… all different. One uses poetry, the other music, to tell their stories. Both are British, both women – one black, one white.
Follow their journey to see how differences can complement each other, the challenges they need to overcome and how honest conversation – and carefree dancing – win in the end every time.
