Surviving Amina is a love story challenged by illness and death, an intimate diary on resilience and hope. It’s a compelling lesson on life that explores how we construct meaning from events that defy our emotional understanding: the illness and loss of a child.
New York and Italy set the backdrop for this provocative and engrossing portrait of a family of young artists through a three years period marked by the Leukemia diagnosis of their second child, baby Amina, and the aftermath of her death. Without ever judging and with immense sensibility it raises disturbing questions about how we confront the most extreme of circumstances.
