America: The New Conquest of the West

The North-West of the United States has become the new Eldorado for Americans in search of wide open spaces and for nostalgic Americans. freedom. In these breathtaking landscapes, the fewer rules and laws there are, the less the federal state intervenes, the better! But not everyone is happy about the new arrivals…

This “Promised Land” today attracts those who flee the cities and unashamedly reject the woke, LGBTQ, Black Lives Matter movements, these trends that are shaking society everywhere else in the United States. Opposed to abortion, in favor of carrying firearms, these mostly white Americans, often Christians with evangelical tendencies, settle by the thousands in this part of America three times the size of France. And transform it little by little into a country apart. Like a new colony.

Gary Grabli and Tam Melacca follow the installation of a family from San Francisco, and set out to meet these new settlers.
