A Detroit Ferry Tale’
Boblo Island, one of America’s earliest amusement parks, sparked the imaginations of Detroiters for decades, with passengers by the thousands reaching the island by way of two steamships, SS Columbia and Ste. Claire. In 1993 Boblo Island shut down, and the boats were left to ruin. Mirroring Detroit’s decline and efforts at resurgence, two teams of people doggedly attempt to restore these iconic vessels and save them from the scrapyard. World premiere.
