Known as the City of Motors, Detroit was once the fastest growing city in the world as the booming auto industry made it one of America’s key manufacturing centers and people flocked to Michigan looking for steady jobs and a chance to live out the American dream. In the 21st Century, the unemployment in Detroit has been estimated at close to 50 percent, and the population has shrunk dramatically. Detropia focuses on the people who are struggling to keep a great American city alive in the wake of serious economic and political woes. It also offers troubling facts on the circumstances that led to Detroit’s economic collapse. Detropia also provides a detailed perspective of Detroit from within through the voices of its residents. I am looking forward to finishing the documentary.
