Detroit Film Theatre
(SOLD OUT!) FREEP FILM FESTIVAL: 12th and Clairmount
Saturday, April 01, 2017
1:00 PM Detroit Film Theatre
THIS SCREENING IS SOLD OUT!
Those five days in July were among the most pivotal — and divisive — in the city's history, with the turmoil leaving 43 dead. While the impending 50th anniversary of the summer of '67 was the impetus for the film, the home movie footage in 12th and Clairmount captures a wide spectrum of Detroit life, from proud streetscapes to dance parties to neighborhood sporting events.
Drawing from more than 400 reels of donated home movies from
the era, other unearthed footage and newly recorded oral histories, the
documentary is being produced by the Free Press in collaboration with Bridge
Magazine and WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) and a group of metro Detroit cultural
institutions, led by the Detroit Institute of Arts. World Premiere. (75 minutes)
