Boblo Boats: A Tale of Two Sisters
Writer/Director: Aaron Schillinger
Editors: Aaron Schillinger, Isabel Sandoval, and Yuki Monestere
Steamships SS Columbia and Ste. Claire transported generations of Detroiters to Boblo Island, one of America's earliest amusement parks. In 1993 Boblo Island tragically shut down, and America's oldest steamboats were left to ruin. Today, a band of scrappy dreamers are fighting to save these iconic vessels, which have emerged as symbols of Detroit's resurgence.
