Jackson Kroopf makes films that combine narrative and documentary techniques. He has worked at the intersection of arts and activism in Poughkeepsie, Oakland, and Los Angeles, exploring collaboration and shared authorship. Each community-based project has brought together a multi-cultural collective of artists that discuss their lives and concerns, and work together to bring those conversations to the stage and screen. Jackson’s previous narrative and documentary work has been shown at places like the Los Angeles Diversity Film Festival and the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles. He is currently earning his Master of Arts in Social Documentation at UC Santa Cruz.
