C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America is a 2004 mockumentary directed by Kevin Willmott. It’s a fictional tongue-in-cheek account of an alternate history in which the Confederates won the American Civil War, establishing the new Confederate States of America (that incorporates the former United States as well).
The film primarily details significant political and cultural events of Confederate history from its founding until the early 2000s. This viewpoint is used to satirize real-life issues and events, and to shed light on the continuing existence of discrimination in American culture.
Rupert Pate as Sherman Hoyle, a Confederate American historian who speaks highly of the Confederate American values. Evamarii Johnson as Patricia Johnson, an African-Canadian historian whose viewpoints focus on the slaves and minorities oppressed by the Confederate regime. Larry Peterson as Senator John Ambrose Fauntroy V, descendant of Confederate senator John Ambrose Fauntroy I and Democratic candidate for the presidency in 2002. Charles Frank as the mockumentary’s narrator.
