'Is That Black Enough For You?!?' Trailer: Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Whoopi Goldberg And More Discuss Impactful Black Cinema For Netflix Doc

Netflix has released the trailer for Is That Black Enough For You?!?, a documentary examining Black contributions to films released from the landmark era of the 70s, featuring commentary from Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya and more.

The documentary is produced by Seven Soderbergh, David Fincher, Angus Wall, and Ciara Lacy.

It marks celebrated writer and film historian Elvis Mitchell's directorial debut.

Is That Black Enough For You?!? is set to make its world premiere at the New York Film Festival on October 9. It will be released in select theaters on October 28 and globally on Netflix on November 11.

Here's an official description:

From celebrated writer and film historian Elvis Mitchell, IS THAT BLACK ENOUGH FOR YOU?!? is both a documentary and deeply personal essay. The film examines the craft and power of cinema from a perspective often overlooked: the African American contribution to films released from the landmark era of the 70s. It is a deep dive into the impact that point of view had on movies, as well as popular culture, and serves as a love letter to film, posing questions that have never been asked, let alone answered. Crucial artistic voices, including director Charles Burnett, Samuel L. Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Laurence Fishburne, Zendaya and others, offer their distinctive prism on the creators and films that dazzled and inspired. The film provides insight into the history of Black representation going back to the earliest days of cinema, and the cultural impact of witnessing unapologetic Blackness.
