Detroit, the “Motor City”, is brought to the screen in a haunting documentary by co-directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady called “Detropia”. The film, which shows a city in urban decay, follows the lives of four city residents who lament Detroit's glory days and regret what it has become.

“Detropia” has garnered great praise from critics and already earned a Sundance Film Festival Award. Its latest honor could even be an Oscar nod. The filmmakers find out on Jan 10, but "Detropia" just made the final 15 Academy Awards documentary short list. Co-directors Ewing and Grady come to the studio to talk about their gripping documentary.
