Industrial collapse scars cities around the globe. Urban heroes are transforming their cities into more sustainable communities.
By the dawn of the 21 st century, many of the world’s once-powerful centers of industry had lost jobs and population to a devastating degree. These urban centers include Detroit, Philadelphia, and Youngstown, in the United States, and Torino, Italy, and the Ruhr Valley district of Germany in Europe. Many critics claimed these urban centers were finished, with no hope of revival or reinvention.
This movie is about the people who disagree…
We've been able to make it to the premiere screening and we'll have DVDs made - but we really need your help in getting this film out in the world!
We'd also like to bring the film to a festival or screening near you!
Film festival entry fees usually START at $25 and with thousands of festivals internationally, we won't be able to enter them all. We want you to help us choose and you get to as one of our rewards! If we get in, we'll see you there!
$5000 will pay for entry fees to at least 50 festivals and all of the mailing, duplication and support required to make that happen, in addition to delivering on your rewards.
THANK YOU for your support of these stories and our project!

Our biggest challenge is at this point, we've made a beautiful film that no on will see!! While we're working on some kind of television distribution, we need the fans and supporters of this work to give it a jump start.
Film festivals aren't really a way to make money, they are a way for films to be screened in communities and we need help getting this story out there!
