Woodstock Vermont Film Series: Monrovia, Indiana

January 11 @ 3:00 pm - 5:20 pm

ONE SHOWING ONLY at 3PM

Forty-six million Americans live in rural, small town America. These towns were once the backbone of American life. While their number and populations have shrunk, the importance of rural America as a formative center of American politics and values was clearly demonstrated in the 2016 presidential election.

Wiseman’s newest film explores conflicting stereotypes and illustrates how values like community service, duty, spiritual life, generosity and authenticity are formed, experienced and lived. And it provides fresh insight into a rural way of life whose influence and force have not always been recognized or understood.

“I would argue that Frederick Wiseman is the greatest American poet. You arrive at meaning through patterns and rhythms, and arrive at a kind of knowledge that’s impossible to summarize, and also to forget.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
