Movies – Filmmaker turns interest in Mississippi culture into movies
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — From a juke joint owner on the run to tales of the Dixie Mafia operating on the Gulf Coast, Mississippi has quite a few stories to tell, and director/filmmaker Travis Mills is helping to tell them.
Mills’ latest feature film, “Texas Red,” opens locally on Feb. 5 at Cinemark Theater in Pearl. Tickets are sold out for the Feb. 5 and 6 showings, but are still available for the Feb. 12 showing.
