Through the eyes of a British "documentary", this film takes a satirically humorous, and sometimes frightening, look at the history of an America where the South won the Civil War.

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)

A thinking film...
30 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie and was able to attend a talk back session with the director, producer and several of the actors- one of the more enlightening movies I've seen in a long time. To draw from what the cast and crew said, this movie is not something everyone will like, and it will likely make viewers uncomfortable at times with how close it comes to the truth. The point of the movie is not to be the most beloved classic of this millennium but, loved or hated, to generate discussion that Hollywood tends to skirt thinking it's bad for business. Wilmott does nothing like radically changing history, he tweaks several incidences enough to create a real world of not only "what if" but "it is," going as far as substantiating some of the more more outrageous laughs with historical proof of how real these unthinkables are today. If you want to see a smart movie with real issues at stake, C.S.A. is a must-see.
