American Cities Rebuilding: Filmmaker discussion on ‘The #1 Bus Chronicles’

The live part of the American Cities Rebuilding virtual conference has ended, but NJ Spotlight News will continue to post recordings of its discussions and films in the coming days and weeks. The conference — held Oct. 15-16 and and hosted by WNET, NJTV and NJ Spotlight News — examined how cities in New Jersey and nationwide are faring during the COVID-19 pandemic and at a time of social unrest.

In this segment, MetroFocus Host Jenna Flanagan sits down with filmmaker Joel Katz to talk about his documentary, The #1 Bus Chronicles. The film follows NJ Transit’s Newark-to-Jersey City bus line, talking with its travelers and hearing their stories.
