Movie Update: C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America

by Rome


Have you ever wondered what this country would be like had the South won the Civil War?

Well apparently Kevin Willmott thought about it…he thought about it so much, he made a movie. The film went on to become a great success at the 2004 Sundance Festival. It’s gotten both good and bad criticism.

Presented by Spike Lee, C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America is a tongue-in-cheek mocumentary about the history of a country that doesn’texist, but might have, had the outcomes of war been different. It shows how slavery would still be a huge part of America’s economy and how it would affect everything from television and pop culture to technology. And it wouldn’tjust stop there…

If you would like to check out this movie, it’s now playing at the Bethesda Landmark Theater
