F.S. Key After The Song

F.S. KEY: AFTER THE SONG is a three-part series about Francis Scott Key's life - after he wrote The Star-Spangled Banner in 1814 - who also was an ambitious political operative and defender of the slavery system. The series is a window into antebellum society and the attitudes and behavior of Americans on slavery that lead to Civil War and in some ways still exist to this day. The film centers on interviews between the filmmaker Phillip J. Marshall and a series of 13 characters from history, including: Mary Tayloe Lloyd Key (the wife of Francis Scott Key), President Andrew Jackson, John Randolph of Roanoke, Edgar Allan Poe, and William Lloyd Garrison, who discuss and explore the events of Key's lifetime in a collective conversation, supplemented with interviews with academicians and experts on the historical period. Re-creations of some historical events add further depth to the film.
