Following his epic previous film--Ex Libris--about the New York Public Library, which was screened at the 37th Istanbul Film Festival in 2018, master documentarian Frederick Wiseman returns with Monrovia Indiana—his new film that focuses on rural America. This time, Wiseman turns his camera to the town of Monrovia where Trump received 76% of the votes in the latest Presidential election. The maestro casts a nonjudgmental look at the daily routines, lives and beliefs of the residents of small towns, whose influence on the American politics continue despite their shrinking populations, in contrast to large cities.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
