The Neutral Ground Screening
This year’s Henry Hampton Film Series selection is CJ Hunt’s The Neutral Ground. Hunt is a producer for The Daily Show and he brings more than a bit of that program’s mix of comedy and political analysis to the film’s examination of the movement to remove Civil War monuments. Hunt presents his personal journey through the topic including stories from his family about the legacy of Jim Crow discrimination, interviews with supporters of the Lost Cause, and the vote in New Orleans in 2015 to take statues down and the following delays that kept them up. Screens for free at Brown Hall Auditorium.
Part of the 30th Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF).
