Svetha Weds Mark

website ︎︎︎
As the product of a mixed marriage, I find that media portrayals of interracial relationships are inconsistent with my real-life experiences. After questioning which reality to believe, I decided to use my thesis project to uncover the true nature of multiracial households. “Svetha Weds Mark” is a three-part multimedia podcast centered around my parents’ wedding.
Through family interviews, historical context, and vivid imagery, this podcast tells a linear narrative which describes the reality of interracial relationships. A love story at its core, “Svetha Weds Mark” ties the union of two families to the broader context of racial politics, tradition, and identity in the United States.
