“What the hell is happening to my country?” After Trump was elected, filmmaker Susanne Brandstaetter investigates the growing divide in the USA. Among non-typical Trump voters in the swing state Ohio, she discovers surprising parallels between America and Europe. What determines people’s choices? Why do people form opinions and then stick to their political positions – no matter what? The filmmaker decides the only chance to understand why the divide is growing is to follow one rule: don’t argue, listen... But as the film progresses, we all are put to the test. “This Land Is My Land”: a cinematic seismograph not only for the US elections in November, but also for changes in Europe’s political landscape
