documentary in development
“A country that denies its people their true history, inevitably denies their humanity.”
Of the nearly two hundred former sites of slavery in America, almost all tell either a whitewashed version of history, or ignore it entirely.
Plantation Nation is a feature documentary that takes us on a rather inept tour through America’s own concentration camps. Inept in that unlike anywhere else in the world, this is a history as told by the losers, for-profit businesses which downplay the ugly truth of slavery and reinforce a culture of denial, racism and institutional cruelty.
