United States of Detroit screening Staff Pick

When: Wed., June 21, 5:30 p.m. 2017
Detroit is usually shown one of two ways in the media — shots of ruin porn or a hyper-positive Pure Michigan-esque drone shot over downtown. Director Tylor Norwood explores the communities in between those two extremes that are often left out of the conversation. Though he touches on gentrification and urban sprawl, he focuses on the Detroit Hustles Harder mentality that pushes residents and leaders to work together to save their blighted neighborhoods. Community activists will moderate a panel discussion after the first film screening in the Fisher Theatre for over 30 years.
