Detroit je t'aime

Thanks to your votes, the ode to an industrial city "Detroit, je t'aime" won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to “Detroit, je t'aime" director Nora Mandray. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month, the winner of which will receive a consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.

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.
