Update: The trailer was now released, which is included below.
We recently had Lemonade Detroit shoot interviews of Detroiters being successful in Detroit despite the economy. From their own website, the synopsis for the movie is:
“Lemonade: Detroit” is a film about the disarming resilience of a city that can no longer rely on a single industry for its livelihood, and the entrepreneurial strengths of those who are reinventing themselves and their communities.
Instead of sensationalizing blight, “Lemonade, Detroit” will sensationalize hope, told through the intensely personal stories of those who are turning the city into what it will become.
What they’ve done in other markets, they’re now doing in Detroit with a Motown twist. This is a great opportunity to see hope in Detroit and positive news instead of the countless negativity that we encounter every day. There are bright spots in Detroit, there are success stories in spite of the economy, and there is hope. The following trailer for Lemonade Movie shows you what they’ve done before, although they were here in Detroit shooting for a new movie on hope in Detroit, it gives you an idea of the excellent film makers that are putting it together!
You can also view a little more of one of the interviews that is the owner of my favorite crepe place! As Torya Goes, Detroit Goes
The Lemonade Detroit crew was also nice enough to take some great shots of our loft space that they used downstairs for interviews and some shots of a portion of the warehouse they took over upstairs for a different backdrop. We would like to thank Erik Proulx and everyone from Lemonade for using our space to shoot such a great movie with an excellent message.
