Aml Ameen in an interview
After the super success of ‘Sense8’, Aml Ameen revealed some details and experiences in an interview. The interview mentioned how Sense8 was not just a television show but how it influenced many of our thoughts and how we process the way we look at the world. It’s an entirely new prospective and a new philosophy, believes Ameen. He also shared his personal experience with the film in the interview. He said, “It’s a whole new consciousness opening up about our interconnectivity as human beings. For a long time, those ideas have been arbitrary or esoteric for some people. I remember speaking to the Wachowski’s and saying that what I find groundbreaking about this show is that the world is in need of that. Indeed, so many of the great people throughout time – especially artists I’ve admired – have spoken about our connectivity. Bob Marley and “One Love,” it’s the essence of the show. If I could sum up this show with something like “One Love,” it’s “I Am We.” Me, we…we are the same. For me, its been amazing going around the world and getting a grip of other people’s culture, other people’s ways of life, honoring that, seeing it from my perspective and theirs, and then kind of having a global acceptance and a shift in perspective at times.”
