The “truth” in between fiction and reality. A documentary, a podcast, and a flash ethnography about the United States – made in a 24-hour period on presidential election day 2020. Two amateur podcasters, Khadim Diop and Xisko Monroe, recorded interviews with strangers in the streets of Times Square from sunrise November 3rd, 2020 to sunrise November 4th, 2020. They asked three questions. Where were you the last election? What do you think the most important issues are in this election? Do you think this will be the last election? A portrait of a time in the USA when strong disagreements between Trump and Biden supporters intensified.
