The Lost Scene

Maggie Roback, Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design

A film documenting the once vibrant local music scene of a small town in Southeast Michigan while investigating why it virtually disappeared. The documentary film is more than a film recording the stories and events of a past music scene, it also explores why the larger community of the town and county ceased to support and encourage young people to join or preserve the music scene. Through interviews and archived materials, the film documents the lost scene of Adrian speculates as to why it disappeared, and asks: could the scene come back, and if so, how?
