About the Project

A motivational documentary film about Detroit filmed from 2006-2021 that explores many narratives within the momentum of Detroits historic rise.
From Detroit based filmmaker Stephen McGee, "It is a galvanizing experience to help
bring a city back. It’s equal parts exhilarating and exhausting
because every single effort I’ve had the privilege to
document will shape the opportunities ahead – for my
daughter, for Detroit and for the world. There’s a
syncopated rhythm to Detroit’s recovery, in the way each of us
are simultaneously finding the individual roles we play and our
collective identity. Detroit’s soul is stronger than ever, largely
because each one of us has given it a part of our own.
