We’re excited to see the film “Black or White” –which opens TODAY nationwide–starring and produced by Kevin Costner and directed by Mike Binder. I haven’t seen the film but I can tell you that it’s definitely a great beginning in mainstream films embracing the stories of the Mixed experience.
We started the Mixed Remixed Festival exactly because we wanted to create a place to share films and books about blended families like the one depicted in Black or White. Writer Kimberly Cooper writes eloquently about the importance of films like this in today’s Huffington Post: “Black or White is trailblazing both for its balanced and inclusive portrayal of black and white interrelationships while at the same time hitting hard at both sides. Long overdue, Black or White and its contribution to the discussion on race in America shouldn’t be overlooked.”
