Miami Exclusive Premiere Engagement!


Documentary directed FREDERICK WISEMAN/2018/2hr, 23mins.

MONROVIA, INDIANA explores a small town in rural, mid-America and illustrates how values like community service, duty, spiritual life, generosity and authenticity are formed, experienced and lived along with conflicting stereotypes. The film gives a complex and nuanced view of daily life in Monrovia and provides some understanding of a way of life whose influence and force have not always been recognized or understood in the big cities on the east and west coasts of America and in other countries.

"MONROVIA, INDIANA IS AN IMMERSIVE WONDER, thanks to Wiseman's masterful ability to assemble images that lead from one painterly visual to the next."Eric Kohn, Indiewire, Full Review

"THIS IS CLASSIC WISEMAN, a film that takes us into the heart of a community and reveals its inner workings, comforts, fractures and traumas."Lee Marshall, Screen International, Full Review

"As always with Frederick Wiseman, it's the quotidian gestures that haunt one in Monrovia, Indiana."Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine, Full Review

"IT’S HARD TO THINK OF ANOTHER FILMMAKER WITH THE SAME PRICELESS ABILITY TO SHOW LIFE, in all its mad variety and with such clarity, on - and more importantly to - both sides."Rory O'Connor, The Film Stage, Full Review
