Director/Writer/Actor- Aimee Patmore
Aimee has studied and worked as an actress for over a decade both in Australia and America. She created the story of Pinch out of parts of her own experience being a woman and fighting the stereotypes of body image. Aimee felt the pressure at a young age that her body may determine her ability to work in her field. The motivation to make this film also comes from her female and male friends who have shared their stories with her.
“Mental health is an epidemic in Australia and it is not just a made-up thing in people's minds, it is a debilitating life-threatening illness. It manifests in the body in ugly ways which Pinch explores. I hope through it we can have better conversations and more honest moments with ourselves and others.”
