C. J. Hunt’s Documentary The Neutral Ground

September 15 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

As part of the Learning from History Series, join us for a screening of C. J. Hunt’s documentary The Neutral Ground, and a discussion of the film lead by Dan Kallgren.

The Neutral Ground documents New Orleans’ fight over monuments and America’s troubled romance with the Lost Cause. 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. 

Event schedule: connect at 7:00 pm via Zoom. Discussion leader, Dan Kallgren, will give the audience things to think about while watching the film. A link to the film will be sent via zoom chat. The audience watches the film on their own. After the film is complete (90 minutes), everyone will re-join the Zoom call for a discussion and Q&A with Dan Kallgren.

This film screening is a virtual event hosted by UWGB, PBS POV, and The Neville Museum.

This event is a collaboration with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series. For more information, please see:  https://www.pbs.org/pov/.
