Film focuses on Ford City community

A University of Windsor graduate wants to brighten the city with a quick look at a community that is fighting back. With help from a small grant from the Social Work Students Association, Matt Krawl has created a short film about Ford City, the neighbourhood east of Walkerville centred on Drouillard Road.

“I hope to leave a mark on Windsor by showing the good things about the area,” said Krawl.
