Pam Sporn’s, DETROIT 48202 examines the rise, demise, and contested resurgence of Detroit through the lens of an utterly charming African-American mail carrier, Wendell Watkins, and the community of committed residents he faithfully served for thirty years. We take a journey with Wendell along his route, winding through the center of what was, once upon a time, a vital and thriving city. We listen in on his conversations with his customers who share their stories and with legendary community leaders who provide a thread of analysis and historical context as they ponder the future of the city. Run Time: 80 minutes. There is a pre-showing activity or community panel at 6:15 p.m. along with the screening at 7, and a post-show Q&A with the film’s director. On Screen/In Person is made possible by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts’ Regional Touring Program.
