Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit

On February 10, Rick Prelinger, founder of the Prelinger Archives, screened a collection of footage entitled Lost Landscapes of Detroit at the city's Museum of Contemporary Art. According to Mr. Prelinger, "a standing-room-only and vocal audience of Detroiters" saw the show. The film is now available in the Prelinger section of the Internet Archive.

this is golden!

If you grew up in the Detroit area this is a must see, or if you live in or near Detroit now and don't remember what it was like when it was a vibrant city.

There are some great videos included in this.... I loved the shots of the premier of "Anatomy of a Murder" , filmed in Michigan at Big Bay and in the U.P..

thanks for the post!

Prelinger is a national treasure. He screened some terrific San Francisco footage a couple months back, and it was a big hit here too.
