Monrovia, Indiana (2018) Directed by Frederick Wiseman
(Part of The Mini Mini Series: Mid by Midwest)
Doors 7:00 PM / Start 7:30 PM @ The Mini - 1329 Main St.
“I thought a film about a small farming community in the Midwest would be a good addition to the series I have been doing on contemporary American life. Monrovia, Indiana appealed to me because of its size (1,063 residents), location (I have never shot a film in the rural Midwest) and the shared cultural and religious interests within the community. During the nine weeks of filming the residents of Monrovia were helpful, friendly and welcoming and gave me access to all aspects of daily life. Life in big American cities on the east and west coasts is regularly reported on and I was interested in learning more about life in small town America and sharing my view.” - Frederick Wiseman (143 min)
Introduction by Steve Rosen - Former Arts & Culture Editor at Cincinnati CityBeat
