ABOUT THE FILM
A little more than 50 years after the landmark Loving v. Virginia U.S. Supreme Court case ended legal persecution of interracial marriage in America, two mothers—one brown, one white—set off on a journey to explore what it means to be a biracial child in a moment of heightened racial division and tension, 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 #BlackLivesMatter and the historic Obama presidency, 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.
ABOUT SILVER SCREEN SERIES
The Silver Screen Series is intended as a gathering place where documentary films can be shown and shared. These films draw on the humanities values of biography, history, culture, and ethics. They are about the stories that define us, connect us with each other, express our values and convey our experiences. The Silver Screen Series is funded in part by Maryland Humanities and The National Endowment for the Humanities.
