(2016) (United States)
Screening Block A, Wed 4/19
“What are you?” is often times more important than “WHO are you?” Checking a little box to identify your race has never been so complicated, especially for an up and coming/struggling actress who’s technically black (French, Native American, etc.) but looks like…. all of the above. Comically she tries to navigate her way through the entertainment industry, life and other people’s perceptions of her and who she “should” be when at the end of the day, one cannot be defined by a box.
