The failure to remove Confederate monuments is a constant reminder of how America continues to perpetuate racism and fails to repair the damage it has caused. Narrated by writer and comedian CJ Hunt, The Neutral Ground follows Hunt's exploration into Confederate monuments and the ideology of The Lost Cause of the Confederacy. The film begins in CJ's adopted home of New Orleans where the fight to remove Confederate monuments sparked a nationwide movement and follows CJ as he travels across the country. He hears perspectives on both sides of the issue, exploring the history of these monuments, the backlash against their removal, and the possibility of a future without them. CJ confronts questions of continued inequality, America's contentious and dark past, and his own complicated feelings. Scathingly funny, and painfully relevant, it is a refreshing journey between the past and the present as we stand in this moment of significant social change.
