Is a Detropian Society the Future?

In 1930 Detroit was the fastest growing city in the world. today it is the fastest shrinking city in the US. There are 100,000 abandoned properties in Detroit.
The UICA has extended it's showtimes for Detropia until October 4th. This elegant and poignant film showcases the pluck and determination of the Motor City as it struggles to survive postindustrial America. We witness a middle class now faced with a collapsing economy, and are left with the brutal warning for the entire nation. 

This isn't a story about Detroit, it's a story about America, and I highly recommend seeking out a theater showing it near you.
