I was super inspired by seeing the film and was most excited about the stories of participatory/citizen design. Detroit has much potential and I want to see a bigger story emerge about that Georgia Street Community Garden! There is a story and potential there. And that's how I was imagining a "Portlandia-esque" commentary to highlight the unique and unexpected in the city.

Glad this film is included as an inspiration, Avi!
