Review: Detropia

By November 30, 2012

Follow me on:


Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady's feature-length Detropia documents the rise and fall of Motor City. The film is a dreamy, moody cinematic collage and tapestry (the term the filmmakers use to define this particular documentary style). Through an array of images taken from Detroit's past and present, from archival clips and the footage from the filmmakers' year-long exploration of the city, we wind through glory and decay, through empire and apocalypse.

Detropia is currently playing in theaters. Read Jessica West's review.
