"Masquerade": In 1848 in rural Virginia, a slave and gay white man escape during a masked ball at the plantation

near Jamestown VA 2018


“Have a Sleepover Productions” presents “Masquerade”, directed by Andrew Hawkins (9 min).

In 1848, on a plantation in Tidewater Virginia, two gay men contemplate escape from the plantation to the city (presumably Richmond).

The black guy wants to pass as white.  The gay man has to pass as straight, but attends a masked ball at the Plantation (which reminds me of Twelve Oaks), which is ironic right now.
