Louis Malle first became acquainted with the everyday rhythms of Glencoe, Minnesota, while filming a TV documentary in 1979. After Reagan’s reelection, Malle revisited the farming community to find familiar faces steeped in a period of economic crisis. Glencoe’s residents make up the fabric of God’s Country, opening their homes and sharing their traditions with Malle’s crew. In turn, Malle speaks with the warmth and empathy of a humbled traveler as he seeks fragments of Glencoe’s essence.
Please note: this screening will take place in the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center.
