|Absolutely! But I hope those with the ruffled feathers will listen to what Wilmott is saying about why the film was made and what he hopes it will bring about. Check out the many film clips, reviews and NEWS at the official website:
CSA, the Movie <--I don't know how that will work for you. Sometimes in order to get a link in the posts to work I must right click and then elect to "Open in new window".
If you come up with an "eslave" (parody of eBay) page with ads sponsored by the Coon Chicken Inn...you're in the right place. Click on anything and it will take you into the movie website.
I'd be interested in reactions to the website. I saw the film at a small film festival in KS in February of 2004. It had already been at Sundance and Spike Lee had signed on at that time. Independence Community College's William Inge Film Festival got a copy because Kevin had made the agreement with them prior to Sundance and the attention CSA drew there. Audience response at ICC was at first shocked laughter then moved to embarassed laughter and eventually to riveted silence. Much discussion followed. And that's exactly what Kevin Wilmott hoped to have as a response.
P.S. BTW the Coon Chicken Inn logo and the canister of Nigger Hair Tobacco shown on the eslave page weren't made up for the film. Real restaurant, real product dating into the 1950s IIRC.
