The Happening – 2006

Posted by on 05 Mar 2006 | Tagged as: Screenings

The 7 minute Apex Street Bridge video was screened at the Duke Center for Documentary Studies annual Happening on March 4, 2006 as part of the Fresh Docs section. Project director, Carol Thomson, was on hand for a Q&A after the screening.

The video looks into the impact of the closing of the Apex Street Bridge to vehicle traffic. The bridge connects two racially different neighborhoods that are separated by the trail and their economic (mis)fortunes. Community leaders from each side share their view on the matter and what has been done and can be to build metaphorical bridges and improve the situation. The final fate of the bridge has yet to be determined.
