Here's my favorite quote, from Rachel Grady:
Initially when we went there, we were just looking for this Phoenix story. We were hoping there were people on the ground there that were really gonna just fix the place. But after spending a couple of years filming there and spending time with our characters we realized that was just a very dishonest story.Really?!? I know that documentaries are kind of like essays and the film makers here are presenting a story. But saying the story of people on the ground in Detroit working to turn things around is a "dishonest story." Ugh. Here's an antidote of sorts:
Detroit Lives, paints a more accurate picture of both the decay and hope in Detroit. Shit.
