Amy Rinquest Director

Growing up obsessed with stories, all of Amy’s favourite stories never reflected her brown identity back to her. Making this film gave her agency for the first time, telling stories that concern the LBG. She is devoted to the process of filmmaking because she wants LBG’s of today to grow up in a world where their reflection is never something they have to desperately search for.
