‘So much darkness, so much desperation’: Talking with the directors of ‘Detropia’ Artists Steve and Dorota Coy, who are major characters in Detropia.
(Loki Films) Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady are the directors of "Detropia," a documentary released last year about the city of Detroit and what decades of industrial decline and population flight have done to it. Dirty Wars. Dirty Wars follows investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill , author of the international bestseller Blackwater , into the heart of America’s covert wars, from Afghanistan to Yemen, Somalia and beyond .
Part political thriller and part detective story, Dirty Wars is a gripping journey into one of the most important and underreported stories of our time. What begins as a report into a U.S. night raid gone terribly wrong in a remote corner of Afghanistan quickly turns into a global investigation of the secretive and powerful Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC).

The new documentary, Limelight; The Rise and Fall of New York’s Greatest Nightclub Empire, which opened this weekend, I thought, was a lost opportunity. Produced by Jen Gatien, the daughter of former Limelight owner and NY nightlife kingpin, Peter Gatien, and directed by Billy Corben, the film takes a “true crime story” approach and focuses too much on the details, giving the audience far, far too much information on legal machinations and the minutia of DEA procedures. They took a story that was positively teaming with sex, drugs and rock-n-roll and managed to turn it into fairly dry “he said, he said” kind of thing.
