Exported From Michigan

Jon Vander Pol

EXPORTED FROM MICHIGAN (DOCUMENTARY) [SUN. SEPT. 27 @ 10:30AM] The economic challenges that the entire country has been dealing with lately are ones that Michigan has been facing for decades. How do we adapt to current economic and environmental demands? Exported From Michigan explores solutions to these problems and finds that a strong economic foundation for Michigan still requires big business and manufacturing; including auto. Michigan has a chance to be a leader in the hybrid electric car market and has both the engineering and manufacturing base to do this. The film also follows the University of Michigan Solar Car Team (one of the best teams in the world) as they compete in the 2013 World Solar Challenge in Australia, racing 1,877 miles across the Australian Outback against their top rivals. The documentary also features prominent faces of the Grand Rapids business community. --- To purchase passes visit www.WaterfrontFilm.org
