Brewster Douglass, You’re My Brother Film Screening & Panel Discussion

General Motors Theater - Detroit
Film Screening


The latest documentary from Detroit filmmaker Oren Goldenberg, "Brewster Douglass, You’re My Brother," is a response to the 'blank canvas' narrative that has been perpetrated by local and national media campaigns about Detroit.  In 1935 Eleanor Roosevelt came to Detroit to break ground on the Brewster Homes, the first public housing project in the country built for black people.  Seventy-five years later, half of the neighborhood has been demolished and redeveloped.  The other half stands windowless and seemingly vacant.


This 27 minute documentary takes an unconventional look inside the historic buildings, introducing the viewer to lifelong residents, activists who fought to keep the projects open, and squatters – themselves former residents – who struggle to stay warm through Detroit’s harsh winter.  With the recent announcement from Mayor Dave Bing to demolish the remaining buildings, the timing could not be better to premiere this new work, which will be followed by a moderated panel discussion with former residents, activists, and city planners.


This film is the third release in three years by Mr. Goldenberg (The Bicyclist 2011, Our School 2010) and continues to raise the voices of Detroit’s citizens and question the future of the city. 


This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 PM; film begins at 7 PM. For more information, please call (313)494-5800.
