When a veteran news anchor is about to be put out to pasture, he threatens to shoot himself on live TV. Instead, he launches into a series of angry on-air rants, which generate huge ratings for the network. This Oscar-winning film offers a still timely look at the news/entertainment business.

The documentary focuses on a personal artistic endeavor led by Ryan Mendoza, a Berlin-based American artist whose work often explores memory. An offbeat homage to Detroit, the award-winning film features Detroit musicians, urban activists, television personalities, artists, employers and many others who want to save their city from the ravages of urban decay and neglect. The film chronicles the moving of the facade of a family house where civil rights activist Rosa Parks once stayed. The house belonged to Rosa Parks’ brother and first caught the attention of Mendoza in 2016 in Detroit. The deconstructed facade was on exhibit in the Netherlands. Brown University offered to bring the exhibit to Providence, but subsequently canceled its support when the house became the subject of a family dispute. The film, directed by Fabia Mendoza, won an award at the 18th Beverly Hills International Film Festival and was a finalist at the 2018 Blowup Chicago International Arthouse Film Festival.
