“Flint Is A Place” Reignites Attention to the City and Residents

Part art show, part documentary, “Flint Is A Place” is a poignant project that returns attention to the Michigan city’s ongoing crises and gives voice to its residents. Zackary Canepari and Drea Cooper’s work, composed of photography and film, is a “cross-platform episodic documentary series about the experience and perception of Flint.” This is just as important now as it was decades ago—perhaps even more so as Flint’s residents have been dealing with various calamities (the water crisis among many others) for an unconscionable amount of time. As DazedDigital says, this project (on show now at Bronx Documentary Center) explores how Flint “is the poster child for the American Dream gone wrong.” See more there.
