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.
