The Paper Tiger video collective (PTTV) is planning a trip to Detroit to look into what flowers are cracking the concrete in one of America's most run down cities. New inspiring spaces such as squats, community gardens and artists spaces are appearing in the ruins of industrial capitalism. PTTV will look into how failure of the local aspects of a global economy give rise to new forms of community and have the ability to change everyday life.
Among the issues we want to cover are how a devaluated housing market is allowing people to create a thriving and innovative new community, how locals are using vacant spaces to move beyond a extremely depressed labor market and how the media and corporations are reacting to these new situations. While we have our own equipment and a talented team we are looking for funds to cover production expenses in Detroit.
