The selections are Detroit through-and-through in “Freep Film Festival Shorts Program #1,” which will include the following docs: “One Piano, Two Broken Dreams”: A musical brother and sister who interacted with a young Stevie Wonder struggle to get by in modern-day Detroit. “3 Acres in Detroit”: Donnie and Fred knew nothing about urban farming when they picked up shovels and adopted a plot of land. But the two unlikely characters are determined to turn one of Detroit’s many abandoned properties into a three-level greenhouse. “Hip Hop Carnival”: Combining the pulse of hip-hop culture, a do-it-yourself ethos and the energy of a Mardi Gras parade, the Hip Hop Carnival was a signature event of the 2014 Dlectricity festival in Midtown Detroit. This short goes behind the scenes as inventive spirits bring it to life. “American Auto”: An endearing portrait of an honest and charismatically gruff used-car salesman who works on Michigan Avenue in Wayne. “Irish Justice”: In 1980 two Irish soldiers were kidnapped, tortured and murdered while on a UN peacekeeping mission in Lebanon; a third was shot but survived. The Irish say one man is responsible, and he is living free in Dearborn working as an ice cream man.
