Two Towns of Jasper
January 20, 2003 5:00 AM Subscribe
Two segregated film crews,
one black and one white, used the perspective of race to create a documentary centered on the dragging death of a black man by three whites five years ago in Jasper, Texas. The New York filmmakers behind the "Two Towns of Jasper"
found the differences in perspective before filming began and the divide only grew more distinct during the two-year project. Premieres January 22nd on PBS
and has already won multiple film awards.
