Melania Trump is only the second First Lady of the United States to be born outside the country, hailing from south east Slovenia to be precise. Modelling in the U.S. in the mid-1990s and becoming a permanent citizen in 2001, Trump hasn't had a huge amount to do with her home country for years, but that hasn't stopped the modest town of Sevnica - where she grew up - from celebrating her.
New documentary First Ladyland takes us around the area, showing off the sights and meeting locals who reflect on her success and hope the association will draw in tourism. The tone is easy-going and optimistic, even though Trump has warned people not to exploit her image or personality; but who could blame them for wanting to Make Sevnica Great Again? Take a look:
