Leena will be showing snippets of her most recent work - Mixed.
Fifty years after a landmark U.S. Supreme Court case ended persecution of interracial marriage in America, two mothers – one brown, one white – set off on a journey together to explore what it means to be a bi-racial child living in a mixed-race family in so-called “post-racial America,” the perspectives of their own families and others, and America’s deep cultural ambivalence about its rapidly-changing mixed-race reality. In the shadows of Ferguson and Charleston, MIXED offers a new lens into race and the lives of the first generation of mixed-race kids and families to be counted in the U.S. Census.
