Wake up and live! You’re in the heart of the Ohio Valley. It’s Shelby County Fair time; perfect weather for broadcasting live. This first feature by hometown boys Turner and Bill Ross takes an affectionate look at Sidney, Ohio, population 20,000. With an anthropologist’s eye, but never a mean spirit, they introduce us to folks whose lives form the backbone of a place that could be Anywhere, USA. High school football kicks off this Friday evening, and all eyes are on the Yellow Jackets. Hits 105.5 provides the soundtrack to Sidneyites’ lives, favoring Little River Band and Air Supply. Guys get their hair cut, girls talk about guys, and Peggy’s husband’s off to jail again. And if you’re confused about your cable access, or if Miss Love has too much to drink, the cops will help sort things out. Beautifully filmed and expertly edited, 45365 was the winner of the Independent Spirit Truer than Fiction Prize. – B.B.
