When We Were Extras

Back in January of this year, I mentioned the work of Joe York and the Ole Miss Media and Documentary Projects Center. That particular project was Sorry, We're Open.

When We Were Extras is another well done piece from Joe which shines a light on, and traces even more of our local history. This documentary's focus is on the 60th Anniversary of the movie release Intruder In The Dust, based on Faulkner’s 1948 novel by the same name. The movie was produced and directed by Clarence Brown, and was filmed in and around Oxford, Ms with many of the local people used as extras. I hope you enjoy!
