After leaving Dogville, Grace and her father discover an Alabama plantation whose inhabitants live as if slavery had never been abolished. Grace, feeling a sense of duty to the people behind the heavy gates, stays to liberate the slaves and see them through their first harvest.

MUBI's take

A difficult yet rewarding film from the equally complex Danish provocateur Lars von Trier! This fiercely polemical, little-seen sequel to Dogville tackles a topic as sensitive as slavery, all the while maintaining its predecessor’s Brechtian premise, anti-American bent, and yes, its brilliance.
