Looking to change the conversation about Detroit and other post-industrial cities around the world, Lean, Mean & Green takes viewers across the Rust Belt and Europe to showcase cities transforming into sustainable communities. Filmmakers traveled to Youngstown, Ohio; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Torino, Italy and Western Germany, in addition to filming in Detroit, where One of Us Films is based.

Lean, Mean & Green premieres on Wednesday, Sept 25 at 7pm at the Detroit Film Theatre. The screening will be followed by a question and answer discussion with director Carrie LeZotte and journalist John Gallagher of the Detroit Free Press.
