Elong E’nabe is a portrait of 6-year-old Angela, a girl with Senegalese roots who was born in Belgium. The film paints a picture of what it is like to grow up as a child with black skin colour in Flanders, often accompanied by racism and the question of belonging. Seeing the world through Angela’s eyes, however, leaves the viewer to feel more optimistic having witnessed the powerful bond between mother and daughter that seems to make their complex situation more manageable.
