DETROIT (WWJ) – A film about young women in the city of Detroit has gained national attention since its on-line debut this week.
Local filmmaker Andy Miller, who produced “The Girls Guide to Detroit” for Team Detroit, says this is a dynamic time for the city.
“Down in Detroit these days, you can just kind of go out there and start talking to anyone and you’re going to find someone who’s doing some amazing things,” Miller told WWJ Newsradio 950′s Marie Osborne.
“You know, I’ve heard a lot of people talk about, like, New York in the 80s, and how … you know, it was completely different city, and artists came in and young people came in and they decided to try to do something” Miller said. “And we want to make sure that we’re around this time to make sure that its properly documented.”
The short film follows the lives of several young women who are making their way in the city, including WWJ reporter and producer Violet Ikonomova.
