Radio Amina


Radio Amina tells the 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 narrative, this beautifully shot 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. Funny and touching Radio Amina is an intimate look at the discrepancies between the hopes of a young girl from northern Nigeria and her reality.

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