In the past five years, Detroit’s local film scene has blown up with hundreds of filmmakers working on short films, music videos, and documentaries exploring the changing landscape of the city. With a storied past and bright future, Detroit is the perfect place for storytellers and filmmakers to create and share their day-to-day experiences living and working in Detroit. The Man in the City Film Series gives these filmmakers an outlet to showcase their work. This ongoing event highlights locally-produced films that raise much-needed program dollars for Y Arts of the YMCA. At each event, the filmmakers will be in attendance to share insights into their creative processes. Man in the City Film Series

This week, I have the opportunity to premiere a short film my team (Jon Braue, Joseph Talbot, and Sean Jackson) and I made for the Children’s Tumor Foundation titled “Victor.” Our film tells the story of a 26 year-old Nigerian medical student who suffers from neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes massive life-threatening tumors on his face. Take a deeper look at his journey and see how he’s overcome his disorder in the most inspiring way. Check out our film, “Victor,” below, and come see us at the Marlene Boll Theatre inside the Boll Family YMCA on Thursday night!
