"Monrovia, Indiana"
Producer: Frederick Wiseman
USA / 2018 / 143 min.

The classic of American documentary, winner of the "Golden Lion" of Venice Frederick Wiseman this time refers to the Americana, which perhaps only John Ford was able to shoot so. For the first time, he went to explore the Western farming settlement Monrovia, with a population of 1063 to 1400 inhabitants. Born out of necessity and the acuteness of the moment, this film explores the importance of rural America as the defining centre of American values. Shooting the representatives of the red state, he does not seek any caricature or solidarity. He shoots these people so that shows their dignity and humanity, finally, that each of us lives life as he can, even if not always with talent and wise. Like a real Americana, it's a film about death of one person and of a certain way of life.
