Stranded at The Corner: The Battle to Save Historic Tiger Stadium from garyglaser.


train station
The last train left the station on Jan. 6, 1988. The building has sat "vacant" since then. Shot in 1998, produced in 2004, (access to the building is completely closed now) this documentary weaves personal memories with stunning visuals of Detroit's long abandoned Michigan Central Train Depot. The historic gem, another in a number of Detroit structures in ruin, was designed by Warren & Wetmore; the same architectural firm that built Grand Central Station. Various visitors wander in and out of the station, each stopping to recount what the building has meant to them. Catfish; the homeless person who became the unofficial caretaker for over 2 years, Hazel Love; whose father worked for the railroad for over 40 years, and Jim Harlow who, fascinated by trains, worked as a dispatcher at the station, among others.
Fresh from its recent world premiere at the Detroit Docs International Film Festival.

Borderline: The Story of 8 Mile Road This program captures the spirit and eccentricity of metro Detroit's most provocative thoroughfare.

No other road in Michigan evokes a response like the one you get when you mention 8 Mile. From topless dancers and the neighborhood groups that battle them, to storefront preachers and the homeless people they minister, 8 Mile remains our areas most notorious boundary.

Thoughtful commentary from Jerry Herron, Director of American Studies, and Ronald Stephens; associate Professor of Communication (both from Wayne State University) provide context and analysis. The documentary also features an interview with Mr. Belvedere (his office is on 8 Mile) as well as clips from some of his classic commercials. Part history, part pop culture, this film like a ride down 8 mile, is both thought provoking and entertaining.

The Hudson's Building This insightful documentary combines the preservation vs. demolition debate, with the social and cultural impact of the much loved 106 year old former department store.

Hudson's employee and customer interviews are featured, as well as dozens of historic photos and home movie footage. Interviews with developers, city planners, preservationists and city council provide an active dialog regarding not only the issue of redevelopment vs. demolition, but also how such decisions are rendered.

Since its closing in 1983, and demolition in 1998, the Hudson's building had come to represent both Detroit's historic past and its potential future. Like no other structure, it sat at the center of all plans concerning downtown development. Part nostalgia, part public affairs, The Hudson's Building documentary illustrates the depth of feelings Metro Detroiters had for the 106 year old building.

The Hudson's Building is truly relevant and exciting documentary filmmaking-well done!

Forgotten Voices This documentary weaves images of hope with the desperate reality of serving a life sentence in prison. Shot entirely at Western Wayne Correctional facility (the former DeHoCo, Detroit House of Corrections in Plymouth, MI) and three years in the making, Forgotten Voices chronicles the struggle of three prisoners and the impact of art in their rehabilitation. Featuring the ArtsGrowth prison outreach program, this film captures the raw intensity of individuals dealing with their violent pasts through creative writing and painting. In true cinema verite style with no narrator, prisoners and correctional staff speak candidly and openly about the merits of arts education in state prisons, and the need for alternative programs, as both the cost and number of prisoners escalate.

Winner; Best Documentary, Alliance for Community Media (ACM)
