Southern surrealism is the name of an art movement that emerged in the American South in the early 1980's and which still influences many film, theater and literary works in present day. The art movement is defined by its exploration of Southern identity, the Southern landscape, and quasi-religious imagery, often blending evangelical Christian motifs with paranormal elements. While beginning as a literary movement, Southern surrealism spread to film and television, most notably the works of director James Carville and playwright Samuel Nunn. Southern surrealism is typically very graphic, with stylized violence and explicit images, and Carville's films are noted for their limited dialogue.
