Description

Mixed Match, a documentary particially filmed in Beaverton and Portland (at Doernbecher Children's Hospital) will have its Portland, Oregon premiere as part of the Northwest Film Center's Northwest Tracking screening series.

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.
