    Can A Serious Film Be Made About American Slavery?

    I've been meaning to get to this topic since it was bought up briefly on last Weds (June 15th) podcast and I thought right now I would throw it out there to hear what you say. But seriously could a serious film about slavery in the U.S. be made?
