Antebellum – Bush & Renz (2020)

Apparently playing before the American Civil War (antebellum) in the time of Confederation and in the present time, we follow Eden/Veronica as a slave on a cotton farm and as a successful author and speaker for black women rights.

The antebellum scenes show the brutality with which the white man ruled over the black. In the present day scenes we see a well off black woman, but in the background racism always plays. Obviously the makers of the film tried to connect the present to the past.

Presented as a horror, I find the film more of a drama with some thriller elements. Even though the antebellum scenes are certainly uncomfortable, over all I do not find the film particularly good.
