This Ain't No Heartland

Rating:No Rating
Release Date:January 1, 2003

Description: After the United States invaded Iraq in 2003, many European journalists and commentators began debating the question of how the average America felt about the war, as opposed to President George W. Bush and those in his inner circle. Austrian filmmaker Andreas Horvath decided to find out for himself; he flew to the United States and conducted a series of man on the street interviews with the residents of a small Illinois town. What Horvath discovered was a community gripped by anger, fear, and xenophobia; most were poorly informed about the war and its consequences while openly hostile of foreigners and anxious about the possible presence of terrorists. This Ain't No Heartland documents Horvath's visit to Illinois as he attempts to find a core of understanding and humanism in a place where both are temporarily in short supply. This Ain't No Heartland received its North American premier at the 2004 Seattle Film Festival.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
