Controversial Film Parodies Slavery

By Sylvia Maria Gross

Kansas City, MO – Where would we all be today if the south had won the Civil War? When the thought occurred to Kansas film-maker Kevin Willmott, he turned to history books and plotted out what would happen up to the present day if slavery still existed. Willmott's film 'CSA: Confederate States of America' pretends to be a British documentary about the history about the Confederate States of America from the Civil War to the present. Director Kevin Willmott teaches film at the University of Kansas.
