Flint is a place

About “Flint is a Place”: Zackary Canepari’s Flint is a Place is a cross platform documentary series about Flint, Michigan. It explores a specific moment within this American city in an intimate, character driven way. Using a variety of media, each of the episodes in the project focuses on a character or a systematic issue and engages with a different community within the city. There is a lot happening in Flint, MI with the contaminated water, high crime and chronic blight. It’s understandable why Flint is always illustrated as a dysfunctional place. And in many ways it is. But that’s not all it is.
