Entertainment Reviews:

Film Comment - 09/01/2008
"MOVING MIDWAY ultimately takes on an optimistic momentum....Cheshire demonstrates how much about race and the South remains sadly foreign to the big screen."
New York Times - 09/12/2008
"Partly a family memoir, partly a historical essay and partly the record of an improbable feat of engineering....[MOVING MIDWAY] tells a fascinating and complicated story of regional identity
Entertainment Weekly - 09/19/2008
"With his deep cinematic knowledge and vivid visual references, Cheshire analyzes the romantic notion of 'the plantation' and offers a compassionate meditation on Southern race relations."
Los Angeles Times - 10/17/2008
"MOVING MIDWAY and its house-relocating metaphor plays its own quirky yet thoughtful part in the question of how much the South has truly moved."

Product Description:

When Godfrey Cheshire's cousin decides to move the family's ancestral home, a beautiful North Carolina plantation, it prompts him to explore the meaning of the house and the secrets of his family's bloodline. Laced with a good dose of Southern Gothic, this documentary follows Cheshire (a film critic) as he meets the African-American limbs of his family tree and confronts the continuing burden of slavery.
