Doc ‘1000% Me: Growing Up Mixed’ Debuts on HBO, HBO Max May 2

Stephanie Prange

The HBO original documentary film 1000% Me: Growing Up Mixed, directed by W. Kamau Bell (“United Shades of America”), debuts May 2 on HBO and HBO Max. 
Through a series of conversations, Emmy-winning producer, director, host, and comedian W. Kamau Bell explores the experiences of mixed kids and families in the San Francisco Bay Area. The film was inspired by Kamau and his wife Melissa’s desire to better understand what life is like for their mixed daughters, who are navigating issues of identity in a world that often asks them to pick a side. The film reveals the joys and complexities of growing up mixed in today’s America.

“As a father of three mixed daughters, directing this film was a deeply personal and profound journey of discovery,” said Bell in a statement. “I wanted to create something lyrical and playful in a way that we don’t normally associate with these conversations but is often the way they happen in my home. My hope is in sharing the stories of these dynamic young people, it will give audiences a window into their worlds and open the door for further dialogue around race, culture, and identity. We all know that this entire country needs it.”
