Dir. Ines Johnson-Spain

Germany 2019. 91 mins. German, French with English subtitles.

Director Ines Johnson-Spain grew up in Germany thinking her dark skin, in contrast to the white of her parents and brother, was of no consequence. Her parents assured her that it was merely coincidental. Becoming Black is then an unraveling as Johnson-Spain discovers her hidden past. This deeply personal film follows her quest for the truth, reflecting on themes of identity and family.
