ArtPrize On Screen: 12th & Clairmount // The Festival

Home movie footage—donated by metro Detroiters—formed the backbone for documentary "12th and Clairmount." The film looks back at the causes and aftermath of the 1967 Detroit riots. Those five days in July were among the most pivotal — and divisive — in the city’s history, with the turmoil leaving 43 dead. While the impending 50th anniversary of the summer of ’67 was the impetus for the film, the home movie footage in “12th and Clairmount” captures a wide spectrum of Detroit life, from proud streetscapes to dance parties to neighborhood sporting events.

Paired with “12th & Clairmount” will be the Michigan-made short film, “The Festival”, directed by Taylor Stanton—a look into one of Michigan’s most unexpected and unique regional events, The Bay-Rama Fly Fish Festival.

ArtPrize On Screen is presented by the Michigan Film & Digital Media Office and produced by Celebration! Cinema. Each film will be preceded by a Michigan-made short film curated by the UICA's Open Projector Night Series.

Film screening tickets are free, but reservations must be arranged for seats in the theater. Rush Lines will form outside the venue 45 minutes before showtime. Fifteen minutes prior to showtime, any unfilled seats will be released to the Rush Line.
