UK – Tinder recently commissioned Black Love Is, a film from Director X celebrating black love in all of its forms.
Featuring people’s personal and intimate reflections on love, relationships and the experience of being black, the three-minute film features real people and the experience of a multi-faceted black community. Through a variety of real-life stories, the film depicts the black community in an honest and authentic way.
Having made a conscious effort to tap into a particular community, Tinder also uses the film to explore intimate relationships more generally. We found those touchpoints for everyone. Personal, intimate reflections on how being black twists together with our understanding of love itself – connections to home, to family, to sexuality and to how we present to each other and the world,’ says Director X.
We’ve also explored communications around the black community in relation to modern masculinity in our interview with artist and film-maker IggyLdn.
