A documentary about memory, monuments, and how to break up with the Confederacy
In 2015, CJ Hunt was filming the New Orleans City Council’s vote to remove four confederate monuments from the city. A forceful group of critics protested the decision and fearing retaliation, no crew would agree to remove the statues. CJ sets out to understand why a losing army from 1865 still holds so much power in America. At once funny and furious, this film documents the USA's troubled romance with the Lost Cause.
