Mixed Match – Asian Heritage Month
May 26, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm| $8 - $13
Mixed Match is an important human story told from the perspective of mixed race blood cancer patients who are forced to reflect on their multiracial identities and complex genetics as they struggle with a seemingly impossible search to find bone marrow donors, all while exploring what role race plays in medicine. With the multiracial community becoming one of the fastest growing demographics in North America, being mixed race is no longer just about an identity, it can be a matter of life and death.
Metro Cinema in Edmonton along with the Asian Canadian Film Series will be hosting a screening of MIXED MATCH on Sunday, May 26 at 1pm. Canadian Blood Services Youth Committee – Edmonton will be in attendance to help swab anyone interested in joining the national bone marrow registry!
Director, Jeff Chiba Stearns will be Skyping in from Vancouver for a Q&A after the screening.
