CROSSING THE LINE: Multiracial Comedians
by Teja Arboleda & Darby Li Po Price (2008)

This award winning documentary analyzes how mixed race comedians mediate multiracial identities and humor. Crossing lines of racial, ethnic, and cultural acceptability by their very existence, multiracial comedians reveal that meanings of race vary across ethnic combination, gender, place, and time. The film features the experiences, perspectives, and performances of 14 American comedians of more than one racial ancestry. (56 minutes)  FREE Admission.

Doors open at 6:00pm – Film screening starts at 6:30pm.

Co-presented with Charitable Film Network, Press Street, and Café Istanbul.  Stay after the screening for a 7:30pm Music Performance by DJ YAMIN, and a 8:00pm Live Comedy Performance by ALEX BARNETT.  For more information contact mail@charitablefilmnetwork.org, and please visit entertainingdiversity.com.
