Vin Diesel stars in this autobiographical short film about his experiences auditioning in New York. Diesel finds himself at the distinct disadvantage of not being Black enough or Italian enough for the roles for which he auditions. Jen Chau, founder of Swirl, a multi-ethnic, anti-racist organization that promotes cross-cultural dialogue, will lead a discussion on race, physical appearance, mixed-race identity, and typecasting. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
