Film Screening: Detropia

Detroit's story has encapsulated the iconic narrative of America over the last century. DETROPIA sculpts a dreamlike collage of a grand city teetering on the brink of dissolution and the community’s refusal to abandon hope or resistance for a radically different future.

"The most moving documentary I have seen in years. Both an ardent love letter to past vitality and a grateful salute to those who remain in place - the survivors, utterly without illusion, who refuse to leave. The filmmakers are so attuned to color and to shade that I was amazed by the handsomeness of what I was seeing. I'm not being perverse, this is a beautiful film."
-David Denby, THE NEW YORKER

"SPELLBINDING! Imagine if Frederick Wiseman and David Lynch had a bastard child, and you'll get a sense of the movie's off-kilter aesthetic, a potent and pointed mix of firsthand observation and surreal flights of fancy. DETROPIA moves with dreamlike fluidity between union halls and nightclubs, from abandoned factories to the Detroit opera house."
-Keith Uhlich, TIME OUT NEW YORK
