Werner Herzog directed a documentary about Detroit and Ponyride

Whether or not you're tired of stories about Detroit striving to rebuild itself, this caught our attention (you'll have to excuse the image that says "A New Detroit"): Werner Herzog, one of the greatest film directors ever, is behind a short documentary about the city and Ponyride, the business incubator in Corktown.

Beyond all the ad copy buried within — Rokkan, a New York-based firm, seemingly worked with American Express to "tell the story of future small businesses" — Herzog's slow-rolling film makes for a neat watch and offers some insight into what Ponyride is about. Check it out here.
