Corktown, or Through the Valley of Dry Bones

By Jeff Augustin

Guest Directed by Chamara Kwakye


Jackee, a fabulous fourteen-year-old boy, takes us on a tour of one of Detroit’s oldest neighborhoods between 2007 and 2034. From the neighborhood’s urban blight to the gentrified renaissance, CORKTOWN chronicles the life cycle of a city and the lives of its residents. When the music is turned down and the graffiti is painted over–there’s a beating heart in a place’s history that can’t be ceased.
