“What the hell happened to my country?” After Donald Trump’s election, this is a burning question for Susanne Brandstätter, an American filmmaker who’s lived most her life in Austria. With the critical distance of a European and an insider’s eye, she gets close to Trump voters in Ohio: a microcosm of a deeply divided USA. Showing striking parallels to Europe, the documentary explores polarization and why people stick to their political opinions – no matter what. Is there no way out?
To mark the anticipated inauguration of President Elect Joe Biden, the ACF London screens this documentary as a reflection on the last four years and the current state of the United States of America.
Austria, 2020, 105min, English, directed by Susanne Brandstätter
