Film Info


Detroit's Cass Corridor, one of the roughest areas in the city for the past 100 years, is now experiencing a complete overhaul, as long-awaited development finally sweeps the area. Last Days of Chinatown looks at who and what remains in the Corridor. We hear how residents survived, how they sometimes didn't, who fled the area and why, as gentrification now redefines the Corridor, long home to the poor and disenfranchised as well as to the artists and visionaries of the city. Directed by Nicole Macdonald.
