User Reviews

are you black, white, or both?
10 January 2000 | by (pittsburgh) – See all my reviews

Dad is white, mom is black. Nia grew up and went to school in the New Jersey suburbs, and doesn't know anything about living and being black. She tries a couple of boyfriends. One has the map of africa in his bedroom, the other is a preppy ivy-league type. Asked to choose, she can't. Help comes from a house-mate musician, who plays different instruments to her hears and eyes shut, asking her to choose the right sound for her. And after she chooses and opens her eyes, she asks what instrument it was, and adding more insecurity, it was a Senegalese musical instrument. Eventually, Nia finds her voice. Was shown in Pittsburgh in 1999 at the second annual afro-american film festival.
