Filmmaker Adam Makarenko shoots Zug Island in this media handout

The Windsor Hum – it annoys many west-enders, and now it’s planned to be the subject of a documentary to get to the bottom of just what the noise is all about.

Toronto filmmaker Adam Makarenko says he came up with the concept to create “an investigative documentary jam packed with stake-outs, surveillance, mixed with a series of interviews from residents to scientific experts” after learning that two years ago a mysterious hum started emanating from Zug Island. Makarenko learned that that the sound is adversely affecting thousands of residents in both Windsor, and areas of Detroit like Delray, Ecorse, and River Rouge.

Makarenko hopes to raise $15,000 on crowdfunding site Indiegogo and plans to use the money to rent a house/apartment in Windsor this summer so that he may have his “feet on the ground…to be there in the trenches…daily”, to purchase special camera equipment and to have a camera and sound crew film the documentary on both sides of the border.

Watch the film’s trailer here:
