Hi- I'm currently planning to shoot a short documentary while I'm in New York in June. I'm looking for a interracial couple to follow as they celebrate Loving day- the day the Loving vs. Virgina Supreme Court case legalized interracial marriage. Anyways, here's my call:

Documentary filmmaker seeks an interracial couple to film at the Loving Day celebrations on June 7th, 2009 in NYC.

-passionate about overcoming racial prejudice
-who is either married or considering it in the future
-interested in volunteering at the Loving Day celebrations (optional)
