Susanne Brandstätter Filmproduktion
“What the hell happened to my country?” After Donald Trump’s election, this is a burning question to the 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 some Trump voters in Ohio: a microcosm of a deeply divided USA. Following the golden rule “don’t argue, listen …,” the documentary explores polarization and why people stick to their political opinions – no matter what. So the film is a plea for an objective, yet courageous debate.
