Dir. Bill Ross IV and Turner Ross. 2009. 90 min. Digital projection. Named after the zip code for the filmmakers’ hometown of Sidney, Ohio, 45365 offers a kaleidoscopic view of America’s heartland. For their eye-opening first film, Bill and Turner Ross eschew standard storytelling devices in favor of impressionistic glimpses into who people are and how they live. From the man who calls a local policeman because his cable is out to an ex-con who is just trying to get by to a judge running for re-election, 45365 covers the landscape and spans the spectrum of class and race in this midwestern town with the intimacy of insiders and the infectiousness of artists at play. “An achingly beautiful film.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times. Winner of the Truer Than Fiction Award at the Independent Spirit Awards and nominated for three Cinema Eye Honors awards.
