EVERYTHING BUT A MAN

DIRECTED BY Nnegest Likké

Country: USA
Language: English

Running Time: 109min

Category: Special Presentation

Vanessa is a self-made, African-American career woman. She seems to have everything going for her, yet there is one element of a happy life that continues to elude her: a good man. Could Max, a mysterious, French-speaking foreigner be the one to change Vanessa’s luck? His lifestyle is so different from hers, yet these differences could be just what Vanessa needs: a challenge to her fixed notions of love, relationships and what being a strong woman really means.

This second feature from writer-director Nnegest Likké explores romance and self-discovery from a bold, intelligent, female perspective—and it might just provoke the rest of us to question our idea of personal success.


PRESENTED IN COLLABORATION WITH AMERICAN BLACK FILM FESTIVAL (ABFF).
