Black Enuf* is an animated documemoir that takes a playful approach to heavier questions of identity, difference, and self-acceptance. Mixing animation, interviews, archival photographs, and a strong sense of humor, the film explores director and animator Carrie Hawks’ as well as her family’s search for belonging. Mixing race kids, hot combs, and Japanese Hip-Hop instructors, Hawks looks to open up the idea of blackness. It used to be that one drop of African American blood made you black, but this film addresses the idea that now, it might take much more.
