DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit: the land of opportunity? Boston documentary filmmaker Erik Proulx thinks so.

Proulx is working on “Lemonade: Detroit” a documentary about people in the City of Detroit who are finding great opportunity in the economic downturn.

Artists, entrepreneurs and  those who’ve been laid off are all finding they can take the moment of despair at being laid off and turn it into a moment of great opportunity.

“Detroit is one of the most inspiring places on the planet” says Proulx who says he discovered a treasure trove of stories when he was talking with a group of laid off workers.

They told him they were finally free to discover what they really wanted to do.

Watch the trailer.
