Moving Midway (dir. Godfrey Cheshire, 2007): Built in 1848, Midway Plantation was one of the most celebrated homes in the Raleigh area — an antebellum mansion that stood as a potent symbol of the Old South. In 2004, Cheshire’s cousin and the estate's inheritor Charlie Silver decided to move Midway away from the encroaching urban sprawl. By the end of its extraordinary, emotional journey, Midway’s "family" has been forever redefined, its past illumined in ways that cast a new light on the South’s (and America’s) status as a mixed-race society. Q&A with director Godfrey Cheshire and others to follow.
