Following his previous film Ex Libris an epic doc about the New York Public Library, which was screened at the 37th Istanbul Film Festival in 2018, master documentarian Frederick Wiseman returns with his new film that focuses on rural America. This time, Wiseman turns his camera to the town of Monrovia where Trump received 76% of the votes in the latest Presidential election. The maestro casts a nonjudgmental look at the daily routines, lives and beliefs of the residents of small towns, whose influence on the American politics continue despite their shrinking populations, in contrast to large cities.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
