THE ANGOLA PROJECT: DETROIT
A Documentary by Jeremy Xido
THE ANGOLA PROJECT: DETROIT, THE FINAL CHAPTER will be a feature film combining documentary, fiction, and footage of live performance. It will chart my attempts to perform The Angola Project while learning, once again, that the stories I intend to tell are almost always undermined by the unexpected realities I encounter. Meeting with old friends and family, newcomers and old-timers, homesteaders and activists, guys on the corner and pool players at the neighborhood bar, the film unfolds as I walk through the landmine of Detroit at this moment in time. What does it mean when people talk about “saving” Detroit? For whom? From whom? For what? THE ANGOLA PROJECT: DETROIT, THE FINAL CHAPTER will be a complex and entertaining portrait of how self and place are inextricably and sometimes painfully woven together.
