From Detroit to Europe, this webdoc explores the “Do It Yourself” movement as a new collaborative way of living in society and thinking about communities. At the forefront of this movement, the city of Detroit has embarked on a radical revolution driven by the Do It Yourself spirit, reinventing all aspects of society, including transport, food supply, communication, work, housing and culture. The DIY phenomenon has gathered pace and is developing all over the world, especially in France and elsewhere in Europe. Beyond the clichés, DIY Manifesto is a gripping portrait of those who are building the society of tomorrow.
