2008 My Family

This video examines the experience of growing up in a bi-racial family in Moscow. The piece begins with words from bi-racial friends, followed by interviews with my family members. In the conclusion I speak about my own experiences. My main interest is to hear my parents’ experience, as I wanted to discover if they understood how it felt to grow up as a bi- racial child in Moscow. This video explores how different members of my family perceive racism, and how or if it has affected them. With this video piece I want the viewer to experience what bi-racial people experience everyday in a mainly white society.
