TOXIC DETROIT (USA, 2012, 10 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere As the city of Detroit struggles to bring itself back from the brink, the burden of a checkered history continues to weigh on its current residents. One of the daunting problems it must confront is the toxic legacy of unbridled industrial production. Toxic Detroit visualizes some of these problems through views of ravaged landscapes and noxious air. The film’s surreal wasteland belies the optimism and determination of Detroiters themselves. Directed by William Noland.
