Storyline

Set in an contemporary alternative world where the Confederate States of America managed to win the American Civil War, a British film documentary examines the history of this nation. Beginning with its conquest of the northern states, the film covers the history of this state where racial enslavement became triumphant and the nation carried sinister designs of conquest. Interspersed throughout are various TV commercials of products of a virulent racist nature as well as public service announcements promoting this tyranny. Only at the end do you learn that there is less wholly imagined material in the film than you might suspect. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

CSA is a documentary on America since the Confederate army won the Civil War.
15 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved it. I thought it was very clever and insightful. It was very funny, but at times it felt as though it was really wrong to be laughing. This was awkward, but I think the movie was intentionally made to create that feeling. It got the point across well.

Entirely politically incorrect, it created the realization in me like nothing I've seen before that political incorrectness is okay and even important.

I've given it a nine instead of a ten because it left me a little uneasy with the "awkward" feeling I mentioned before. I felt a little unsure of whether it would be "OK" to like it because of the sensitive racial issues it discussed with such levity. For this reason I understand why people might dislike it. However, it was definitely worth it. Very artfully assembled, it looked at the hypothetical CSA of the 21st century in a way that had never occurred to me, and made me proud to be a citizen of the UNITED States of America,
