This film evokes an apocalyptic vision. Once America's fourth largest city, Detroit was built by the car for the car, with the first freeways, suburbs, and shopping centres, it embodied the American dream. Now it's a dystopic city. Greenery grows through ruined office blocks and car plants. Crime and arson are rife. But there's hope. Streets are being turned to art. Farming is returning to the city. Is this the future for post-industrial cities?
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Julien Temple
