Southern Circuit Film THE NEUTRAL GROUND will screen online April 3-6, 2022.
A documentary about memory, monuments, and how to break up with the confederacy
The Neutral Ground documents New Orleans’ fight over monuments and America’s troubled romance with the Lost Cause. In 2015, director CJ Hunt was filming the New Orleans City Council’s vote to remove four confederate monuments. But when that removal is halted by death threats, CJ sets out to understand why a losing army from 1865 still holds so much power in America.
“The Neutral Ground” neatly balances wry bemusement with a more sobering history of Louisiana and the South than many locals get in school.” _ Peter Debruge, VARIETY, June 29, 2021
The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts. This screening is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
