Two teams of fifth-year architecture students had documentary films selected for inclusion in Jackson’s 2013 Crossroads Film Festival.

The documentaries were produced in the fall of 2012 as part of the Theory of Urban design course under the direction of Jassen Callender, associate professor.

The documentaries were:

• “Visible(  )”
– Dennis Daniels, Nels Long and Joe Mangialardi – Documenting the impact of vacant structures in Jackson, the filmmaker talks to people who interact with these urban voids on a daily basis and asks the question: How can place be made among such voids?

• “Jackson Mobile: A New Alternative” – Taylor Coleman, George Jordan and Cody Millican – A close look at the current transportation issues in Jackson and a possible solution to reduce the amount of vehicular traffic on the streets.

The festival takes place April 11-14.

“Jackson Mobile: A New Alternative” will appear in the ‘Student Showcase’ block on Saturday, April 13 at 11 a.m. at the AM Malco, Screen C.

“Visible(  )” will air in the ‘Visually Striking’ block on April 13 at 1;15 p.m. in the PM Malco, Screen C.
