Be the Cure for Cancer Patients – Mixed Match – Filmmaker Interview

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 nearly impossible search to find bone marrow donors, all while exploring what role race plays in medicine.

Alan Ng speaks with director Jeff Chiba Stearns and producer/subject Athena Asklipiadis about the film and this important cause. The interview took place at the 2017 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.
