Monrovia, Indiana

Directed by Frederick Wiseman
USA, 2018, 143’
Festivals: Veneția, Toronto, New York


A contemplative and lyrical documentary on rural and small town culture in mid-America. Master documentarian Frederick Wiseman examines in a purely cinematic way how values like community service, spiritual life, duty, generosity and authenticity are being formed, experienced and lived along with conflicting stereotypes. The film gives a complex view of daily life in Monrovia, a mostly white town of around 1,000 people, and provides an insight into a way of life that is largely unknown or misunderstood.
