Friel Films Options Dean Dimitrieski's
Tears for My City: An Autobiography of a Detroit White Boy



Friel Films producer Phil Wurtzel explains: “This story really appeals to me on a personal level.  It is really everyman’s story of the struggle to build a better life for ourselves and our families, told through Dean and his family’s personal true story: Immigrants looking for a better life, arriving in America from war-torn Macedonia, and the problems they faced once they landed in Detroit during the crack cocaine wave.”



Dean Dimitrieski’s Tears for My City: An Autobiography of a Detroit White Boy is the powerful true story of a Macedonian boy whose family moves into Detroit’s most dangerous neighborhood when gang violence was at its peak during the seventies.


Film Intended to Give Hope to Inner City Young People

Phil is working on connecting with the community groups who are active in helping improve the lives of inner city young people beginning in Detroit, so the film will genuinely speak to and become an actual resource for those young people, enabling them to take the first step towards improving their lives.
