Moving Midway

Moving Midway

Dir. Godfrey Cheshire, USA, 2007, 95 min, Documentary
Special Guests: Godfrey Cheshire & cousin Al Hinton

What is a Southern plantation? A relic of a bitter, divided past? A vanished realm of aristocratic charm and elegance? An impediment to the modern South’s frenzied effort to turn itself into an anonymous landscape of superhighways and strip malls?

Or, perhaps, all of the above, plus something else as well: a site for understanding and reconciliation, a meeting place of past and present, black and white.

A locus of home, family, enduring traditions…and new beginnings.
