Video: Dreaming of The Past – Bazooka Films 77
Another existential piece about the abandonment of Detroit. This video is a quick glance into the fantasy of the Motor City, an insight to the past and look towards the future. A somewhat romantic feel to what once was a place where dreams were told, left and passed on so that the next generation could talk about the fantasy of the Motor City.
Abandoned schools like this exist all over Detroit. While the sheer number of them says a lot about our education system, it unfortunately says more about the state of the Motor City. It has fallen into disrepair, becoming a playground for deviants, and a nightmare more many of the locals. As a solution Detroit has gone hard and fast after graffiti writers, recently upping the charge to a felony, and just two weeks ago arrested Shepard Fairey. They have also come hard with the buff, turning the once colorful, albeit apocalyptic, landscape into a dreary wash of grays and beige. Bu, lets dream of a place like this instead.
