A Park for the City (2014) Online

In the 1890s, the city of Detroit hired famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted (co-designer of New York City's Central Park) to create a one-of-a-kind park on Belle Isle in the Detroit River. In this film, Detroit resident Nicole Macdonald uses BBC footage and surveillance tapes from motion sensor cameras, to take a Night at the Museum look at the flora and fauna that are reclaiming the island's abandoned zoo. Macdonald provides insightful commentary about her beloved city with this visual field guide in which she labels plants and identifies the wildlife caught on tape. Among them: a pair of foxes living next to an abandoned office chair in the old seal pool and a bear caught wandering on the cracked pavement near the deserted pavilion. {locallinks-homepage}
