Students, please use this RSVP form to sign up for transportation to the screening.

Every semester, Princeton University’s URB202, “Documentary Film and the City,” chooses a collective focus for our work. This year's historical approach explores the volatile 1960s and the changes they brought to Trenton.  We’re looking specifically at the unrest of April 1968 that followed the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the tragic death of one young Trentonian, and what those difficult days mean for Trenton today.

We hope you'll join us for our screening and discussion. The event is an opportunity for us to share our work, invite your further participation, and thank the many people who have given their time and resources to the project and shared their stories. It's free and open to the public.

Our student films are directed by:
Jordan Antebi
Andie Ayala
Emmy Bender
Tylor Johnson
Jack Lohmann
Talya Nevins
Briana Payton
Spencer Parts
Sarah Sakha

This year's film jury members are:
Jill Dolan, Professor of English and Theatre, Dean of the College, Princeton University
Duncan Harrison,  Trenton City Councilman and Associate Executive Director of UIH Family Partners
Melvin McCray,  Filmmaker and Professor, Columbia University School of Journalism

Thank you again for your interest, participation and support --
