HD 480p, 720p, 1080p
The Antebellum period in US history was a time of immigration and settlement, and therefore many new industries developed. Because of this, many well-known historical movies are centered around the life of some of these new and interesting American businesses, such as the makers of the first home movie, Charles Davenport and Zabdiel "Ziggy" Joseph. Their work can be seen in the documentary series "Arrested Development," which follows their work with film production through several generations.
While Arrested Development may not be as well known in the United States as the first "movie" to use the term, "specialty," this documentary series is the continuation of a style of filmmaking that is as iconic as it is popular. In this series, originally called History Channel Specialty, director Mitch Hurwitz, along with producers David Guarascio and Eric Roth, takes us behind the scenes at various, classic American businesses, including an episode on the Zabdiel's first "movie." In addition to the most famous story in the history of the home movie, the Zabdiel Movie, we learn how a group of historically, African-American, mothers who were struggling to pay their mortgages built their own movie theater out of newspaper boxes and transformed the Zabdiel Movie Theater into a crucial cultural presence in the 1980s.
For those looking for a more modern style of film production, an episode of the History Channel Specialty series titled "The Last Movie" is worth a watch. David Blake and Jonathan Goldsmith's episode takes viewers back to the late 19th century, when a former slave and the owner of the first movie theater opened a theater in New York City. It is here that African-American women like Madame Zenobia began to develop a professional film industry of their own. Although not quite the antebellum era, this one is worth watching, if only because the way the zebra prints have changed over the years.
If one is looking for something darker than the History Channel Specialty series, there is also another show based on the Antebellum period. This one is called "The Black Plague: The Most Fatal Invention of All Time." This four-part series takes an in-depth look at how the Black Death impacted human society, leading to mass mortality. The panel includes directors Matt Chameides, Stacey Wong, and Joshua Vincent, along with screenwriter Dan Calkins, who has written several short stories, novels, and novels based on the history of the Black Death.
The History Channel Specialty series on the Antebellum period is not the only television show that covers this period. In addition to being featured in the National Geographic series, there is also the film "Gone With the Wind" starring Gregory Peck, and the award-winning documentary, "Eddie," based on the work of the controversial author, Theodore Dreiser. This particular one might not be as popular as the one focused on the Zabdiel's story, but there is definitely something fascinating about its subject matter.
While the History Channel Specialty series is definitely popular, the Antebellum period as portrayed in the film "Eddie" has become even more popular since its release. Directed by Jason Reitman, the film revolves around the life of a woman named Ruth Rendell, who was the first black female banker in Manhattan, and who was forced to flee with her husband, Nelson, because of the Civil War. As one of the people featured in the documentary, it is easy to see how the series came to be.
Though it would be impossible to cover every single American era in depth in a short article, there are certainly many great shows that feature this time period. These include documentaries that take viewers on tours of museums, historical societies, and important buildings, and movies that take us behind the scenes of the early music industry, to the revolutionary era. Both these types of shows have been shown before, but as online viewers we have never had access to them until now. These online features allow you to find out more about the history of a particular period in American history, just by surfing the web. No longer do we have to visit local bookstores or visit museums to learn about a time when slavery was still legal. and for many Americans, the only thing that is needed to experience this era is to use the internet.
