Enough Short Film

"Looking for mutual respect, but you got your foot on my neck!" This extraordinary short film has been a decade in the making. Enough (stylized as enough.) is a short music video doc profiling the life of musician / hip-hop artist Nathan Nzanga. "A dream, a nightmare, a musical. Ten years in the making, welcome to the stormy inner world of one Congolese-American coming of age in the US." Directed by award-winning filmmaker Caleb Slain, the film follows Nzanga's journey from quirky kid born to Congolese immigrants, to an idealistic teen artist, to a frustrated young man struggling to overcome pain and cynicism. The film has inspired artists to create posters in support, and one of those creators is the multi-award winning artist & celebrated Hollywood poster illustrator Akiko Stehrenberger. She has unveiled a painting inspired by the film (seen below), which is now being auctioned off via Prodigy Camp. To hear more about her inspiration and why she made this art - click here. This is a powerful short film that will hopefully wake up more people.
