In the past decade the American South has become a nexus of film production. Over a year ending summer 2019, $2.9 billion was invested into Georgia alone, as a result of productions choosing to film in the state.
Alongside blockbusters like "Avengers: Endgame" and "Black Panther," both filmed in Georgia, there isd a new wave of independent productions that are bringing the realities of the South to the screen. Many of these smaller films tackle subjects that are close to home, including police brutality, shifts in sexuality and gender norms, and the legacy of the Civil War.
