|Mixed Roots Midwest at DePaul Nov 1-3, 2012 as part of CMRS 2012|
Mixed Roots Midwest FestivalIn conjunction with the 2012 Critical Mixed Race Studies Conference at DePaul University, Mixed Roots brings short films, a filmmaker panel, and a live show featuring local and national talent exploring the Mixed experience.
Selected Shorts: Silences, Crayola Monologues,
Mixed Mexican, and Nigel's Fingerprint
These critically acclaimed shorts take on themes of racism, familial relationships, the
Census and how we define ourselves in a world focused on categorizing racial identity.
Mixed Roots Filmmakers Panel
Three filmmakers discuss their journeys from pre-production through postproduction,
and what inspired them to tell stories of the Mixed experience.
Filmmakers: Kip Fulbeck (The Hapa Project 2001-2006), Jeff Chiba Stearns (One
Big Hapa Family, 2010) and Kim Kuhteubl (Nigel's Fingerprint, 2003).
Mixed Roots Midwest LIVE
Experience an energetic, thought-provoking evening of spoken word artists from
Chicago's own 2nd Story, and a preview of Fanshen Cox's solo-show-in-progress. These artists meld performance with an exploration and critical analysis of what it means to have a mixed identity.
All events will be held at DePaul University Lincoln Park Campus, Student Center 120AB
2250 North Sheffield Avenue Chicago, IL 60614
