Borderline: The Story of 8 Mile Road

The Hudson's building: an Urban Garlic production; directed by Gary Glaser; written and produced by Gary Glaser, Dave Toorongian. Documentary (ca. 45 min.) about the history of the Hudson's Department Store in downtown Detroit, and the debate over possible demolition of the structure after its abandonment by The Hudson's in 1983. Includes historic photos, home movies, Hudson's employee and customer interviews as well as city planners, developers, and city council.

Borderline: the story of 8 Mile Road an Urban Garlic production; directed by Gary Glaser; written and produced by Gary Glaser, Dave Toorongian. Documentary (ca. 30 min.) about 8 Mile Road. From topless dancers and the neighborhood groups that battle them, to storefront preachers and the homeless people they minister, 8 mile remains Detroit's most notorious boundary. Part history, part pop culture, this film is about a ride down 8 Mile, the borderline between Detroit City and Metro Detroit suburbs.

Train Station produced by David Isern and Gary Glaser; [directed by Gary Glaser]. Documentary (28 min.) about the historic Michigan Central Train Depot, built in 1913 by Warren and Wetmore, the same architectural firm that built Grand Central Station in New York. The last train left the station on January 6, 1988, and the station has sat vacant since then. This documentary was shot in 1988 when the building was still accessible and weaves personal memories with stunning visuals of the train station.
