Deeper Than Black is a short documentary on the exploration of self-identity written and produced by a Ghanaian-American filmmaker Sam Addo.
A Ghanaian American filmmaker looks to bridge the divide between his African pedigree and American birthright by confronting the question: “Who am I, and where do I belong?” Born and raised in the United States to Ghanaian parents, Sean Addo, a product of two different cultures sets off on his quest to clarify his identity. Propelled by his fear of the loss of his Ghanaian culture, Sean looks to connect to his African heritage through dance, food, and language.
The film was completed as part of the University of South California Fall 2013 series of films. To learn more visit, https://www.facebook.com/deeperthanblackfilm
