Description: In this surprising documentary, archaeologist and historian Neil Oliver examines the urls between racism today in the Deep South and the Scots who first occupied it. He starts by explaining that hundreds of thousands of Scots emigrated to America throughout the eighteenth century after being forced off of their land. The comeback of cotton gave them the occasion to become slave masters and wealthy plantation owners, but the Civil Fight left them embittered. Because of that, six Scottish-American former Confederate officers formed a fraternal society that became the oldest and most feared hate group in America: the Ku Klux Klan. At the turn of the twentieth century, a racist novel by other Scots American became a bestseller, and the popular movie based on it, The Birth of a Nation, revitalized the Klan. Now, well over 1,000 hate groups stalk America, including the League of the South, which advocates a separate Southern society run by "Anglo Celts."

Contemporary Color Reviews:

David Byrne's concept of mixing high school color guards (which do a lot more than wave flags these days) and contemporary musicians for a huge concert has the potential to be a special entertaining experience. But you don't receive anywhere the full experience the method this movie is shot and edited. One would expect that the performances would be the focus of the film, generally shown from a wide angle so the choreography of the whole squad is featured. But these filmmakers don't seem very interested in that, they much prefer close-ups, and often of the singers, ignoring the performance team. During the performances they also slash in many backstage and preparation shots, with the melody of the performance playing, as if to highlight the fact that you aren't seeing the what seemed to be the central mission of the film. And plenty of shots of the audience, even some of the filming crew. For some of the groups less than a quarter of the performance is on-screen. There is more of the same between the groups and that is fine to add a feel for the event. Some of it is live interviews shown at the arena while the following group set up. Even during the finale when all 10 groups come on scene and do a short coordinated routine, the main shot is a close- up of David Byrne jumping up and down. Never do we see the panorama of all 10 groups in synchronization. This movie can give you some feel of what the happening was like. But if you wish to see the current performances as the audience did, particularly if you have some connection to one of the teams, this movie won't do it. Maybe the DVD will have premium sections of the current performances.


I somehow stumbled upon this film and it looked very well whats the word: interesting. Contemporary Color just looked like other concert film wannabe but they just add color guards and singers that no one have ever heard of (minus Nelly Furtado) and you have a film that tried to be a documentary but in the end, turned out to be just one colourful mess. i mean, don't receive me wrong. there were some postives to this film. 1) the color guards were very good. 2) the singers had nice songs. 3) the fact it took zone in NY was nice too. what i also didn't receive was that they happening took zone in 2015 so maybe 2016 would have been a nice release year besides 2017. but ethier way, i was very satisfied with the entire vibe of the film and i would see this film again for sure.
