A Film by Mitch McCabe


Part verité essay, part political diary, 23 MILE is an experimental nonfiction film following Americans during cataclysmic events in the Midwestern swing state of Michigan throughout 2020-- including the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer-- painting a portrait of a populace that defies media stereotypes. A document of complex discourse, the film forces viewers to question their own assumptions about race, class, social status and geographical demographics, drawing a surprisingly hopeful human portrait against the foreboding backdrop of societal instability. 2024, 78 min (World Premiere: True/False, March 1-3)

23 MILE is part of a trilogy of nonfiction feature films about political collision in the United States, focusing on the filmmaker's home of Michigan as a site of study (experimental film Civil War Surveillance Poems in post-production, and Untitled 2024 Project, in pre-production.)
