The Free Press documentary «12th and Clairmount» looks back at the 1967 Detroit riot/rebellion, its causes and aftermath. Vintage home movie footage from metro Detroiters provides the heart of the film.
Drawing from more than 400 reels of home movies from the era, other unearthed footage and newly recorded oral histories, the documentary was produced by the Free Press in collaboration with Bridge Magazine, WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) and a group of metro Detroit cultural institutions, led by the Detroit Institute of Arts.
There will be a panel and Q&A after the screening.
