Last weekend we did our first #MakeAmericaSmartAgain screening of Mike Judge’s movie “Idiocracy” in Detroit and it was a great success. We’re lucky enough to have had incredible support by our friends at the Library Street Collective, The Skip Bar in Detroit, Vote Detroit andDetroit Soup. I really love Detroit and the rich creative community and engaging dialogue that seems to always happen whenever I strike up a conversation with a Detroiter. The people are so inspiring and I’m very happy with our event. The momentum coming out of Detroit is really exciting as we look now to September 24 in Los Angeles. More updates on the LA front will be happening very soon! But for now, don’t forget to get your tickets.
A big thank you to JJ and Anthony Curis and all the partners at The Skip, Allison Kriger, Ellen Vial and Katy Cockrel from Vote Detroit, Awenate Cobbina from the Detroit Pistons Foundation, and Amy Kaherl of Detroit Soup. It also couldn’t happen without my team at Studio Number One.
Detroit Free Press wrote a great article about “Idiocracy" which I was interviewed for. It’s definitely worth a read and gives context to why “Idiocracy” is the perfect film to screen right now. Click here to read.
Thanks for caring!
