STORY DESCRIPTION:

"CSA" ventures a glimpse into a world where the South won the American Civil War. Using hybridized factual and fictional elements, this faux documentary, in the format of a British produced television special, details the "grand" history of the nation as it fights to preserve its way of life. Through the aid of racist television commercials and newsbreaks, we observe Lincoln exiled to Canada, chattel slavery imposed on all non-Aryans, conquest of Latin America, an alliance with Hitler, Cold War with Canada and a Slave Shopping Channel that spurs the economy. As the United States expands its influence over the world, black men pack its prisons and the country is its most divided in over a century between two distinctly different political views, the film explores who actually won the hearts and minds of the American psyche.
