You might remember last summer I included the trailer for a very important documentary, Lemonade. Written and produced by Eric Proulx, it focused on how several laid off advertising professionals bounced back to create a better job, a better life situation and most importantly, greater happiness. Truth be told, it’s a very uplifting documentary whether you work in advertising or not.
Eric Proulx is back with the follow up to that documentary called Lemonade: Detroit. There’s no doubt that our country and especially cities like Detroit have been hit with some very difficult times. Here in Chicago, I’ve run into several Detroit area transplants that lament the state of that city, but also talk about the city with fondness.
I love the fact that this documentary reminds us about what is possible, not only in Detroit, but in challenged cities across our country.
