Introducing New America NYC's Social Cinema series, a monthly screening series featuring social-issue documentaries followed by lively dialogue and debate.
Detroit's story has encapsulated the iconic narrative of America over the last century -- the Great Migration of African Americans escaping Jim Crow; the rise of manufacturing and the middle class; the love affair with automobiles; the flowering of the American dream; and now . . . the collapse of the economy and the fading American mythos.Join us for a screening of the award-winning feature documentary 'Detropia,' which tells the story of this Midwestern city teetering on the brink of dissolution, followed by a discussion with directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady.
