Regional Roots

The Birth and Evolution of Detroit and Its People

Covering 300 years of history, Regional Roots uses the immigrant experience as an introduction to the diverse landscape of Detroit. From the earliest French and German settlers to today’s growing communities, immigrants continue to shape the region in pursuit of the American Dream.

This video was produced in partnership with the Detroit Orientation Institute.  Extended interviews can be viewed on the channel One of Us Films created in addition to the 26 minute documentary.
