Film: Detropia

The story of Detroit’s precarious decline as one of the nation’s great cities may not function as a cautionary tale for Chicago…yet, but the filmmakers make a compelling case for the universality of their evocative look at the ailing metropolis. There’s grim beauty to be found in the desolation of the hulking skeletons of factories and commercial buildings, and in the weed-grown streets of fast-emptying residential neighborhoods where Detroit’s citizens scramble for a fighting chance. Workers ranging from UAW employees to artists speak out about what went wrong and what could still go right in Motor City. HDCAM video. (BS)
