Real. American. Films.


We create films for the educational market that foster dialogue between Americans from all walks of life.

Dixie is the result of five years of exhaustive research into the legend and lore surrounding America’s most dangerous song. Featuring archival documents, photos, music, and newsreels spanning 180 years of U.S. history, a more comprehensive story of the song will never be made.


“My students and I found the film to be highly informative and evocatively entertaining. Kelley navigates the complicated histories of civil war and civil rights with precise scholarship, judicious illustrations, and cinematic artistry.”

Prof. Corey Markum, Freed-Hardeman University

“This film is a masterpiece of documentary filmmaking. It is also hands down one of the best films I’ve seen or am likely to see in 2016 (or any year).”

Steve Kopian, Unseen Films

“Eye-opening… a highlight of the Oxford Film Festival.”

John Beifuss, The Commercial Appeal
