Summary
Am I: Too African to be American or Too American to be African? is a documentary film that explores the complex identity formations of young African women living in America and West Africa who identify bi-culturally. It specifically looks at how they wrestle with concepts of race, complexion, gender, and heritage among other issues.. Cultural identity is always complex, especially for those who straddle the lines of two worlds. So when you're an African living in America, how do you navigate what it means to "African-American?" It's this idea that Sierra Leonean-American filmmaker Nadia Sasso explores in her documentary, "Am I: Too African to be American or Too American to be African?" The first in a series, the film features interviews with several women of African descent in media, including "Awkward Black Girl" creator Issa Rae, who is half-Senegalese. The film highlights issues that divide African and Black American people in the United States, including internalized prejudices and a lack of community.
