Am I Black Enough For You (2009/87 min/dir. Göran Olsson / Shown on DVD). PHILADELPHIA PREMIERE. Preceded by the short film, COLOR ME IN (2013/10min/ Shown in HD) by Sharvon Urbannavage, starring Kai Davis.

The first feature from filmmaker Göran Olsson (The Black Power Mixtape), Am I Black Enough for You tells the story about the artist Billy Paul, the city of Philadelphia and the lifelong companionship between Billy and his wife Blanche. It’s a film about love, marriage, about life’s complications. The film follows the story of Billy Paul’s song ‘Am I Black Enough for You’. The song was the second single, a follow up to the classic ‘Mrs. Jones’ a number one and smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic. On release ‘Am I Black Enough for You’ flopped, a failure that nearly cost Billy his career. Am I Black Enough For You offers never-before-seen insight into the now legendary Philadelphia R&B scene which produced some of the most successful songs/albums in modern popular culture.

While this film has been shown on international TV and released on DVD in the states, this is the first time it is being shown in Mr. Paul’s adopted hometown.
