Heidi Ewing, co-director and co-producer with Rachel Grady of the documentary film Detropia, discussed the premise of the film, which seeks to highlight the continuing deterioration of Detroit. She talked about Detroit’s dramatic decrease in population over the past fifty years and stated that an additional fifty percent of the remaining population would leave immediately if given the opportunity. She highlighted Detroit Mayor Dave Bing’s efforts to bring the city’s financial situation under control. She suggested that Detroit is not alone with its problems, and the United States may be heading for an era of failed cities. She reacted to a video clip of “Q&A with Clarance Lusane” about the 1967 riots. Video clips from the film were shown including illegal “scrappers” who stripped metal from abandoned factories, a local blogger who explores empty buildings, and two artists who recently moved to Detroit in search of an inexpensive home and a place to experiment with their art. close
