Détroit, once the “Paris of the Midwest,” is today a city in ruin. Hard hit by the crisis, it has become the symbol of the abuses of the American model, a metropolis that increasingly recalls the third world and resembles a bombed-out city in certain places. For 25 years, the director followed the daily lives of people who live in this world regulated by unemployment, segregation and violence.
A documentary exploring the rise and fall of Detroit. Compiling historical footage and interviews with the city’s residents, this meditative documentary looks at a city reclaimed by nature and resettled by 21st century urban pioneers.
