DETROIT:
UNBROKEN DOWN

by Dave Jordano


At the heart of America’s Rustbelt story, the experience of deindustrialisation, population loss and infrastructure collapse in Detroit has been extreme. It has inspired almost an industry of ‘ruin porn’ photography. Dave Jordano’s long term documentation of the city focuses instead on the resilience and creativity of people who have been left to their own devices.

(Grady/Ewing, 91 mins, 2013, NR)

DETROPIA chronicles the lives of several Detroiters trying to make sense of what is happening to their city. An owner of a blues bar, a young blogger, an auto union rep, a group of young artists, an opera impresario and a gang of illegal “scrappers” make up an unlikely chorus that illuminates the tale of a city in a soul-searching mood, desperate for a new identity.

(Michael Moore, 90mins, 1989,15)

Michael Moore demands answers when General Motors suddenly closes the doors of all its auto plants in Flint, Michigan, the city where he grew up. With over 30,000 people out of work, Flint is economically devastated. Moore aims to track down General Motors CEO Roger Smith to make him answer for his actions.

(Mark McInnes, 93mins, 2011, NR)

Against all odds, in the boarded-up shops, empty lots and defunct factories, seeds of change are taking root in Detroit. With the most vacant lots in the country, citizens are reclaiming their spirits by growing food. A small group of dedicated Detroiters have started an urban environmental movement with the potential to transform a city after its collapse.
