Detroit Radio

by Alex Schafran

For the second installment of my series on Detroit, I humbly offer a video that I shot with my partner-in-urban-video-crime Ricardo Valente Cardoso. Filmed using multiple small cameras over a period of six days in May, the video includes no voiceovers or added sound — everything comes as we found it, in more or less chronological order.

It is an attempt to “portray” Detroit in a way that mixes the multiple realities of a complex city in a complex time, one that does not shy away from scenes of abandonment or hope but that remembers to have fun along the way.
