Swimming in Nebraska

Directed by Jon Jost
United States, 2010
Documentary, Avant-Garde

Synopsis

It is meant as an oblique critique of the kind of provincialism in which New Yorkers or Parisians say things like, “Nebraska, there’s nothing there” or refer to the American mid-West as “fly-over country.” This film is a celebration of the provincialism where there’s “nothing” (Jon Jost).

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
