Deforce - 120s Trailer from Daniel Falconer on Vimeo.

Craig welcomes Daniel Falconer and Andrew Rodney, writers and producers of DEFORCE: America's Past, Detroit's Future, to talk about their new film which premiers at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History on Wednesday. "Deforce" tracks Detroit's history from the early and middle 20th century success to the decline later in the century. Ken Burns, revered documentary filmmaker of "The Civil War", "The National Parks", and many more, says "'Deforce’ is an essential study of an iconic industrial aftermath. The ceaseless trials of Motown are brought to life as never before.”

The Detroit premier of “DEFORCE” will be held in the GM Theatre at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History on Wednesday, March 14 from 7 to 9 p.m. Sponsored by Arise Detroit, the 86-minute film will be followed by a short discussion panel and Q & A session with several of the film’s interviewees. The event is open to the public, but tickets can be reserved for $5 per seat by emailing info@deforcemovie.com with “DEFORCE Tickets” in the subject line.
