Black Public Media and the Rejoice/Resist Film Festival co-present PBS’s award-winning film The Neutral Ground. This official Tribeca Film Festival selection is directed by comedian CJ Hunt and executive produced by comedian Roy Wood, Jr. and explores memory, monuments, and America’s confederate past.
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. Preceded by the short film “Dead Beat” by Ashley Denise Robinson, music by DJ Cool Gee.
