The short film version of Mulatto Saga based on the controversial stage play, which focused on the bi-racial experience in America, is now a 7-minute film written and directed by Juliette Fairley.
Syndicated nationally on rotation on NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX and the CW TV networks, Mulatto Saga will air as part of an African American Short Films showcase from today, August 4th, 2012 through September 30th, 2012. The schedule, including broadcast time and TV stations, will post one week before the first air date on August 4th, 2012 at www.badamitv.com/nowplaying.php.
With the arrival of Barack Obama’s presidency, interracial relationships are at the forefront of popular culture, according to a 2012 Pew Study, which found that the acceptance of interracial marriages by American society is at an all-time high.
Director and actress Juliette Fairley notes: "Times have changed. When I was growing up with a black father and white mother in Texas 20 years ago, my family was often stared at, judged and shunned."
Mulatto Saga is now represented by The Kartel Company. For more information on Mulatto Saga, like MulattoSaga on Facebook or follow the film on Twitter @MulattoSaga.
