Black Hair and Black Eyed

Directed by Julie Whang
1995
USA
9 mins

From what sources does a young Korean American woman draw her sense of identity? From her mother, who provides the kim chee recipe and offers to pick up what she needs from the Price Club? From fashion magazines, or her own short haircut, which brings her the berating of her entire extended family? From the boy she dances with, the girl she sleeps with, or her own barren apartment? Julie Whang’s 1995 daring short Black Hair and Black Eyed may raise more questions than it answers. But in its own quirky way it asks the questions that matter.
