DETROITERS" , by CALDODECULTIVO Detroit (USA) 2017. 40’—PREMIERE: SAT 22 JULY 6pmDETROIT FILM THEATRE — DETROIT INSTITUTE OF ARTS—“The greatest bankruptcy”, “the ghost city”, “the capital of crime”, “the ruin”, these are some of the terms used to talk about Detroit, all of them are ahistorical and biased, but also useful to urban speculators who are seen as saviors of a “hopeless” metropolis while Detroiters are blamed when not completely erase from the equation. So, Detroiters are not only fighting the violence of the State and the market but also facing the violence of misrepresentations of their city and its inhabitants. In that context, the film Detroiters responds to the violence of such representations with the creative “violence” of Spoken Word to build a powerful narrative of the city through Detroiters who use the body and the words as political and poetic strategies.Detroiters is a polyphonic narrative of a particular city but it’s also the portrait of the contemporary city, a scenario where radical forms of pauperization, segregation and displacement are been tested. Hence it becomes necessary to explore the political cry, the rhymes and rhythm that prepares us for the battle.
