With the premier of Dallas, The Oak Cliff Film Festival, and Samuel Lynne’s Summer Film Series kick off, it seems like this is the week to get in front of a screen. Adding to that list is Bridging the Trinity for the Love of the City, a unique documentary presented by the Trinity Trust on the creation and planning of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.
Directed by award-winning documentary team Judy Kelly (producer/writer) and Ginny Martin (photographer/editor), the film will begin with former Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk’s announcements to the community in 2001 and follow all of the builders, planners, politicians, philanthropists, truck drivers, crane operators, engineers and architects who helped erect what has become one of Dallas’ newest landmarks.
In case you missed the opening celebrations for the bridge back in March, the 30-minute documentary will conclude with footage from the festivities, including the levee run, parade of giants and ribbon cutting.
So, before you switch on TNT at 8, tune in to WFAA at 6:30 p.m. to get an inside look into the Calatrava masterpiece.
