Documentary 'Detropia' being shown at Sundance



A feature-length documentary titled "Detropia" is being shown at this year's Sundance Film Festival.

The Detroit Free Press reports (http://on.freep.com/xAVmYi ) that the film portraying the Motor City as a canary in the coal mine of America's economic future makes its premiere on Saturday at the event in Park City, Utah.

"Detropia" is made by filmmakers Heidi Ewing, who grew up in Farmington Hills, and Rachel Grady. They are known for the documentary "Jesus Camp," which focused on an evangelical Christian summer camp.

Ewing says a hope is that "Detropia" helps Americans examine their priorities and reflect on their own communities.
