Lemonade: Detroit (2013)
17min · Documentary, Short, Drama · 3 January 2013
Bad news is sensational. It's the stuff of prime time exposes and gotcha news hours. People are attracted to bad news for the same reason they slow down past car accidents and watch horror movies -- It's impossible to turn away. But instead of sensationalizing blight, the film Lemonade: Detroit sensationalizes hope. It is about the disarming resilience of a city that can no longer rely on a single industry for its livelihood. Rather than glamorizing ruin porn, Lemonade: Detroit makes hope, optimism, and positivity as intriguing to watch as a train wreck.
