Here's an up close and personal video with the face behind Q.U.E.E.N. The lovely Nyemiah Supreme will be playing the role of Imani in Q.U.E.E.N. Here's an inside look into her world.
What is Q.U.E.E.N.?
In 15 minutes, Q.U.E.E.N. explores the themes of identity, sexuality, abuse, expression, and more importantly healing. Q.U.E.E.N. follows a sixteen year old teenager named IMANI who struggles to find her voice. Through the different relationships with her mother, good friend Zoe, and school teacher Ms. Visovsky, we enter Imani’s interior world.
Imani uses writing as her muse to say all the things she is too afraid to say. Through self discovery and a little bit of courage, Imani faces her biggest fear at a rap battle. She finally tells her mother about an event that has been haunting Imani for three years. For the rest of the story, you have to watch it!
This story inspires me because I believe wholeheartedly in women and young girls telling their stories. It is important to me that men, children, but especially, women and young girls, understanding the importance of releasing their pain and living out their life’s purpose.
In high school, I remember vividly writing for hours about school, boys, puppy love, things that intrigued me, and so many other things that pained me too. I rarely shared my thoughts with anyone.
I want to paint a different reality for Imani. Although her past is a little different than mine, I strongly believe in young girls and women realizing that they are more than their painful experiences and broken relationships, they too, can be victorious.
