Indie film partly shot in Detroit set to premiere

CANTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — An independent film shot partly on Detroit’s Belle Isle and in the city’s Greektown entertainment district is scheduled to make its Detroit-area premiere.

Detroit author Elizabeth Atkins says “Anything is Possible” will be shown Friday at the Emagine theater in Canton Township, west of Detroit.

The Rev. Marvin Miles, pastor of International Gospel Center in Ecorse, is the film’s executive producer.

Atkins says “Anything is Possible” was shot in 2011. The suburb of Plymouth also was one of the filming locations.

The movie centers on a young Detroit boy whose Army lieutenant mother goes missing during a tsunami rescue mission in Japan.

Atkins and 15-year-old son Alexander Bowman have roles in the film that stars 12-year-old pianist Ethan Bortnick.
