The Damfinos present "The General in Context."

PostSat Aug 19, 2017 3:26 pm

From the International Buster Keaton Society --

The last few days, we have noticed conversations online about The General because it's told from a Confederate point of view. We addressed these same concerns two years ago, following the Charleston massacre, in a special issue of The Keaton Chronicle. We have uploaded a pdf of that issue on our website:

Also maybe see this inadvertently-prescient 2015 thread- - PRO-CONFEDERACY FILMS - perhaps more timely than ever, with its talk of Robert E Lee statues and the sins of Washington and Jefferson.
In the past few weeks, another controversial project has begun production: HBO's CONFEDERATE,
an upcoming alternate universe series where the South doesn't lose. One (perhaps premature) complaint being made is that in real life- in many ways - "the Southern cause" actually hasn't lost- voter suppression, profiling, unequal sentencing, unequal school funding, gerrymandering, etc.

CONFEDERATE kinda sounds like CSA.
