In Moving Midway, award-winning Southern film critic Godfrey Cheshire uses the relocation of his family’s North Carolina plantation as an¬†occasion to examine the Southern plantation in American history and culture, including its impact on areas as diverse as music, movies and contemporary race relations.

Part present-tense family drama, part cultural essay, the film also involves an ongoing dialogue between Cheshire and Dr. Robert Hinton, an African-American history professor whose grandfather was born a slave at Midway Plantation.
