Burn: One Year on the Front Lines of the Battle to Save Detroit

A harrowing picture of the daily battles Detroit firefighters face, Burn drew critical acclaim for its accurate, portrayal of just how badly fires and blighted buildings plague the city. Firefighters attached cameras to their helmets to offer up-close accounts of the city’s daily infernos. If there was ever an appropriate depiction showing just how much the city has fallen from its heyday, Burn delivers; it may not tell the full story, but it’s one of the grittiest, truest documents showing the everyday problems some Detroiters face.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
