"A 21st-century American Graffiti...Expansive and cumulative, 45365 is a big interpretation of small town life."—Full Frame Documentary Film Festival
The winner of the Best Documentary Grand Jury Prize at the 2009 South by Southwest Film Festival, 45365 gets its title from the zip code of the film's subject, the town of Sidney, Ohio (located about 40 miles north of Dayton). Rather than focus on specific people or storylines, the Ross brothers, in their impressive debut feature film, provide a lyrical portrait of their hometown and of small town midwestern life in general. Beautifully filmed over the course of nine months, the documentary is full of affection for the town and its inhabitants and offers many artful and intimate glimpses of everyday life: 4-H clubs, high school football, church services, judge's races, and nights at the local bar. (93 mins., video)
The Ross brothers introduce and discuss the film on August 14. An encore screening, without the filmmakers, follows on August 15.
