DETROIT DETOURPRINT THIS PAGE
Detroit, once the world capital of the car industry, is now merely a detour to be avoided. The once booming city has become a ghost town known for its high crime rate. But it looks like something is changing in the vast voids amidst the city. Documentary maker Katharina Smets wanders through the urban landscape. In the ruins left behind by capitalism at its peak, she discovers unexpected beauty. During Detroit Detour Katharina shares her experience through an imaginative audio performance in the dark.
