Artist Bio

Caleb Jaffe

A racially charged incident during his freshmen year in college left him anxious and confused. Before then, his mixed-race background was just part of how he defined himself. Answering questions about identity took on a new urgency. So Caleb Jaffe—a 21-year-old Culver City, California, native—took his savings, left school, and decided to make a film about the confusion. It’s Not About Jimmy Keene is his first professional production.
