Part testimonial/part confessional. What are the lines between the facts of who I am and the fiction of what I can become? Mixed↑ is a reclaimed book of genesis: a manifesto that collides the wildly diverse elements of being queer, mixed and different in a world socialized around the construction of race, gender and orientation. Mixed↑ follows Howard J Davis aka Haui in his feature film directing debut, as he combats the isolation of being BIPOC and LGTBQ+ and helps to normalize the existence of being “other”. Featuring Haui’s biological and found family including: actress/activist Tantoo Cardinal; stage and screen performer Thom Allison; multidisciplinary artist Jani Lauzon while also featuring the musical talents of Canadian opera singer Isaiah Bell, singer/songwriter Alex St. Kitts and Canadian gem Jeremiah Sparks. Co-produced by trans filmmaker/ producer Jack Fox, Mixed↑ demands that we celebrate the beauty of being unique without negating the struggle of finding inner cohesion.

Artist's Statement:

This film is the culmination of many years with my personal journey contending with and finding inner cohesion in a society socialized around categories of race, gender and orientation. As someone of mixed heritage I know I cannot speak for everyone who shares the experience of being mixed. What I can say is that the mixed experience is a beautiful one with tremendous gifts. The gifts however come with a cost that carry with them enormous complexities. We are bridges to helping others understand what it means to be human, flaws and all. We must all acknowledge the ghosts of our past to move forward conscientiously and to continue to help normalize the existence of underrepresented communities. The stigma around mixed people being “diluted, and mixed-up” and just that, an old antiquated idea. This film is a love letter to my dad and a celebration of what it means to "mixed up" which I wear and brandish proudly. We must take ownership of our own narratives. I AM BLACK. I AM WHITE. I AM QUEER. I AM HERE.
