It’s an eighteen-minute documentary that’s been earning rave reviews and awards worldwide. “For Flint” debuts tonight in the city that inspired it, with a free screening at the FIA.
“We couldn’t be happier to be at the Flint Institute of Arts It’s an amazing opportunity for the film to show it, where it all began for us, eighteen months ago,” said the film’s director, Brian Schulz,
Schulz is a New York resident and Emmy award winning, and has taken “For Flint” both near and far.
“We started in New York City at Tribeca Film Festival. We made our big premier there and went to Mountain Film Festival. We were in Italy in Torino, and Australia,” said Schulz.
Interestingly enough, Schulz is a guy with no ties to the Flint area.
“I was just reading about all the negative publicity that Flint was getting with the water crisis and I said I have to do something positive to affect change. I thought if I could out the little nuances and people that make this city great, that could serve as inspiration to motivate change,” said Schulz.
