The film takes an eye-opening look at the diametrically different cultures of Detroit, Michigan and Lodz, Poland, two former industrial towns suffering from the same fate of unemployment and population decline. Interviewing citizens, policy-makers and entrepreneurs, “After the Factory” reveals how these fallen giants might be the innovators writing the new rulebook for cities of the future.
