Film Critic takes the director's chair in Moving Midway

By Allan Maurer

[Moving Midway is making the rounds. We've encountered it since this review was written at the Virginia Film Festival in Charlottesville, and the Asheville Film Festival. Haven't had the pleasure of running into Cheshire again though.]

Note: First Run Films recently picked up Moving Midway for a national run.

Godfrey Cheshire's "Moving Midway," documents the hoisting of his ancestral family Plantation mansion in Knightsdale, North Carolina onto dollies for transport to a new location away from shopping malls and urban sprawl encroaching on it.

But it's much more than that.

(On the right: Midway Mansion's Plantation House)

The documentary examines Cheshire's personal Southern family drama-a venerable literary genre that not infrequently finds its way onto film-but also the way it connects to larger issues ranging from slavery and racism to the movie mythology surrounding the Antebellum Plantation South. Although the film premiered at this year's Full Frame documentary festival in Durham in April, we saw it at the Charlotte Film Festival in September with Raleigh native Cheshire present.
