The multiracial community is fast becoming one of the largest demographics in North America. A special dilemma has arisen with this growth: medical issues relating to complex genes and donor matches in blood cancer patients. Emmy-nominated (Yellow Sticky Notes) director Jeff Chiba Stearns explores the meaning of race in medicine as those in need of help reflect on their own multicultural identities in this evolving world. Stearns mixes live action and animation to tell an important human story in which race is no longer just about identity, it is a matter of life and death. Stearns will introduce the film.
A reception will take place prior to the screening at 6pm in the Stevens room near the Whitsell Auditorium with cupcakes generously donated by Lightning Cupcakes and Cakes.
