Toasted Marshmallows is a forthcoming documentary on the experiences of mixed-race women. This summer I sat down with producer Anoushka Ratnarajah (left) and director Marcelitte Failla (right) to find out:
- how much power the myth of the "tragic mulatto" still has,
- how stereotypes affect women differently than men, and
- how body image gets tied to race when you're growing up biracial.
