"Two Trentons: An American City Speaks" To Be Screened At NJ Film Festival

(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- The documentary film Two Trentons: An American City Speaks tells the story of a city through the words of its citizens, who speak passionately about the progress of a community renewing itself even as a tragedy strikes at the heart of its rebirth. “Two Trentons” is an official selection of the 2019 New Jersey Film Festival, and will have its premiere at the Festival on Sunday, September 15 at 7:00pm.

This frank, unique and revealing film portrays the drive and spirit of hope in the people working to bring vitality and safety to their city. It describes clearly the social and economic forces that have driven its decline and those that are shaping its future. We meet the activists, businesspeople, artists, musicians, planners and politicians dedicated to improving their city and see the challenges and setbacks they face along the way.

Two Trentons is a story relevant to all American cities, presenting an ultimately hopeful view of how people working together can shape a community’s future.

For more on the film, check out the feature article in NJ Stage Magazine Issue 62.
