Seeking Interracial Couple in NYC for short documentary on Loving Day

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

This morning I saw this request in one of the mixed race yahoo groups I'm in. I would love to see an Asian Black couple interviewed for this.  We have to start controlling how our images and stories get out to the main stream by telling them ourselves! Let me know if you get interviewed.

Documentary filmmaker seeks an interracial couple to film at the Loving Day celebrations on June 7th, 2009 in NYC. The Loving Day Campaign (http://www.lovingda commemorates the legalization of interracial marriage by organizing an afternoon of festivities the Solar 1 pier in New York City.

Ideally, we are looking for an interracial couple who is:
-passionate about overcoming racial prejudice
-has had some challenges in the past or present
-who is either married or considering it in the future
-interested in volunteering at the Loving Day celebrations (optional)
-be willing to have a camera follow them on the day and be interviewed about how you met etc. (on possibly another day)

The video will be aimed for broadcast on Current TV and available on the internet to help promote Loving Day. It will also be a lovely way to capture and share the story of you and your loved one/s.

If interested please contact the filmmaker:
