Kimie Minobe was born in Cairns, Australia in 1996. Her work comprises a range of mediums, but most prominently video and text. Due to her father’s job, she experienced frequent moves as a child, from the U.A.E in the Middle East to East and South East Asia. These frequent travels whilst providing an imaginative upbringing also made her more sentimental about her friends, family and the different places she visited. As a result, a fascination of people, as well as a longing for connection, is a prominent theme throughout many of her works.


She hopes to continue making films that engage the audience through confession, and candid displays of vulnerability that incite humour and empathy.
