Rerouting the Motor City: Notes on a City in Transformation
Bluestockings (172 Allen St., Manhattan)
Weaving together original footage, archival materials and recent interviews, Paper Tiger’s latest documentary explores the radical labor history, philosophy, and action going on behind mainstream “Motor City” headlines. Local activist and agricultural efforts are seen in tension with gentrifying forces, global restructuring, capitalism and corporate media. This video celebrates Detroit’s transformative creativity and self-determination while keeping an eye on the mechanisms of enclosure and erasure that people all over the world rise up against. Paper Tiger Television is an open, non-profit, volunteer video collective that works to challenge and expose the corporate control of mainstream media.
