Mixed Match

A compelling character-driven documentary intended to help save lives by exploring how diversity and ethnicity play a critical role in multiethnic patient survival.

“A touching film. Mixed Match gives a human face to a critical need.” – Kip Fulbeck, author of Part Asian, 100% Hapa and Professor of Art, University of California, Santa Barbara

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.
