Trailer Park: SXSW Film Day 6

Three picks (and clips) from today's screenings

In our Festival preview coverage, we mapped out eight global films that have a geographical home at their heart. But these three documentaries prove we could have found just as many from the nooks and crannies of the U.S. of A. Check out these trailers for some of today's films to help you find your place.

This is … the Trailer Park.

Each year, tens of thousands of people gather in "the worst place in the world" to build a city and then blow it all up. Are we oversimplifying? Catch this project from directors Steve Brown and Jessie Deeter, and then you be the judge.
