The Trenton Project: “Private Lives, Public Stories” Screening

Thu, 5/9 · 6:00 pm8:00 pm · Betts Auditorium

Department of History; The Trenton Project

History 202 and The Trenton Project cordially invite you to the premiere of six short micro-documentaries. The student screening, “Private Lives, Public Stories,” explores biography, archival filmmaking, urban history, and the ways that individual experience contributes to profound social change. Our focus is Trenton in the 1960s.

Now in its tenth year, The Trenton Project is a collaborative documentary investigation of a city. We work together with residents and institutions to document and amplify the lives and talents of Trentonians as they weave and repair the fabric of a city. We’ve conducted research, created films, raised questions, gathered archives, told stories, and hosted conversations.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the student filmmakers and film participants. Details about the films are on The Trenton Project website. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. We hope you
can join us.
