Independent Lens: Detropia
Mondays, May 27, 10-11:30pm
Detroit was the birthplace of the middle class, an industrial utopia where anyone who worked hard enough could experience the American Dream. In the past three decades, the city has seen its might crumble as oil prices spiked, the auto industry declined and the middle class began to disappear. This new film chronicles the lives of several Detroiters trying to survive and make sense of what is happening to their city.
