DETROIT JE T’AIME is an interactive documentary on Detroit’s DIY culture, featuring inspiring stories & cool tips for you to create your own projects. Today the Motor City, formerly known for its assembly line, is building a new collaborative economy thanks to its unique DIY spirit. DETROIT JE T’AIME tells three interwoven stories about community-building in the post-industrial era; it follows a group of female bike mechanics, an urban farmer and an activist hacker, each of whom are making Detroit into a sustainable city through small-scale DIY projects.
