Detroit Rock (Dove) City | US

Detroit is dying, Some saw Detroit is already dead. But to those who have a love affair with the grit and grime which is the motor city, this is simply a metamorphosis.
As a cyclist and urban dweller, I've always been fascinated with bike couriers. Like the Pony Express of the urban jungle, they risk life and limb to deliver the essential documents of the corporate canopy.
In this documentary, I felt that this was the embodiment of a beautiful metaphor: as the great auto industry burns out, a small spark of life flickers at Detroit's core - the simple and sustainable business of delivery by bike.
One phone call later, I was chasing Tim Sargent, owner of Rock Dove Courier company, down Woodward Ave., dodging pylons, parked cars, and red lights. Energy, thrill and passion, back-dropped by the empty skyscrapers and relics of the old American dream.
Through the exciting life of a bike courier, this collection represents the life of rick and creativity which is essential for those that have any hope for the survival of Detroit's present and future.
