Fifty years ago Detroit was booming with two million hard-working people living the American Dream. Then the auto industry crashed and so did the Motor City. Although many people moved away and whole neighborhoods turned into wastelands, some folks never gave up on the city they loved. They had a dream of a future Detroit and have been working to make it come true.
We Are Not Ghosts is the story of people creating community businesses, peace zones, thriving organic urban farms and venues for poets and artists. These are the tales of Detroiters remaking their city with vision and spirit. The AISFF Screening Committee were unanimous - very inspiring!
