‘Detropia’ documentary producer to take part in live link-up after screening in Nenagh

Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady’s new documentary ‘Detropia’ which screens at Nenagh Arts Centre on this Thursday, 7th February opens with a frightening statistic; in 1930, Detroit, often labeled America’s ‘Motor City’,  was the country’s most booming town because of its auto industry and manufacturing plants all across its land. Today, it is one of the fastest declining cities with over 100,000 vacated homes and lots. Its economy is in shambles, its townspeople exhausted and underpaid, and overall appearance mirroring that of a desolate wasteland.


This screening features a live skype interview with producer Craig Atkinson which will take place after the film. Craig will speak from Americaabout how the film came about and the reaction to it in Detroit.

 

The film screens at 8 p.m. on Thursday, 7th February. Tickets at €7 are available at the door.  For School bookings/screenings please contact Nenagh Arts Centre on 067 34400
