Left Behind:

Chrysler's Assembly Plant

 

Shot & Edited, 2010

 

In December, 2008, one of the east coast’s last remaining automobile manufacturing facilities closed after nearly 60-years in operation. This undergraduate students’ program captures the microcosm of national implications of the plant closing and its impact surrounding Newark, DE.  Students reveal the plant’s heyday, its promise for the university’s future, and its legacy of accomplishment and pollution. Students discover its patriotic contribution to the Cold War, the economic boom it brought to a sleepy Delaware town and six decades of persistent chemical contamination, left behind in the soil, water and air around the plant long after global economic trends forced it to close.
