A recipient of an Honorary Oscar® for lifetime achievement in 2016, master filmmaker Frederick Wiseman (Titicut FolliesHigh School) has created, over the course of more than forty features, one of the great bodies of work dedicated overwhelmingly to the minute observation of American institutions. Following a set of recent OKCMOA favorites—In Jackson Heights and Ex Libris—that engaged with New York City’s extraordinarily diverse present, Wiseman turns his ‘fly-on-the-wall’ camera toward the nation’s heartland, presenting life in a very different corner of the country: in place of the taxi schools, citizenship tutorials, and pride parades, Monrovia, Indiana fills its fascinating and familiar two-and-a-half hours with Bible studies, high school band concerts, and Lions club meetings. As always eschewing voiceover, on-screen titles, and other overt forms of narration, Monrovia, Indiana allows the people and the place to speak for themselves in the leisurely and lyrical latest from a director who consistently has been working at the peak of his craft as he heroically enters his sixth decade of artistic practice.
