About this submission
Growing up as the only black person throughout most of my adolescence left me wanting to change how I acted, the way I dressed, and how I spoke to fit in. I choose to create the film Fly as an amalgamation of code-switching, belonging, and what it means to be “Black”.
The main character Eric is at this intersection. He is a mediocre hip-hop dancer blatantly unaware of the ways he is changing himself in order to feel belonging.
