Mixed Up follows the story of Kenyatta Gerard (Ian Lassiter), a mixed-race jazz musician, who discovers he has no African DNA. In this dark-comedy short film, Kenyatta struggles with what this ethnic "lacking" means, and what race actually is...or isn't.

Trembling Branch isn’t like other schools. Its grounds are impeccable, its classrooms state-of-the-art, and its students...a little more committed than the average high schooler. Follow prospective student Freddie as he meets the chefs, hackers, and botanists that make up the Trembling Branch student body--now, if someone could just tell him where the teachers are, and what’s down that ominous stairway...
