From 'Ruin Porn' to 'Prosperity Porn'
Part of a promotion for shoes, the videos look at positive projects and groups doing work in Detroit.
"Now, from an unlikely source, comes a sweet little series of films that looks on the brighter side of Detroit. You might be surprised at the host -- Johnny Knoxville, of Jackass fame. And yes, these documentaries were produced as a promotion for trendy Palladium Boots (good for stomping around urban rubble?).
Don't let that put you off. The filmmakers move beyond what one resident calls 'ruin porn' and find people who are working to build a new Detroit."
