Show of the week: Detropia

In just 80 years, Detroit went from a beacon of industry to the fastest-shrinking city in the U.S.

In just 80 years, Detroit went from a beacon of industry to the fastest-shrinking city in the U.S. The decline has been well documented, but seldom as poignantly as in this impressionistic film. Detroit’s stalwart residents express frustrations about the past and skepticism about the city’s plans to turn abandoned neighborhoods into urban farms. Cautious optimism arrives with the auto industry’s recent rebound, but the prevailing sentiment is worry that Detroit’s present might be America’s future. Monday, May 27, at 10 p.m., PBS; check local listings
