Red Dead Redemption 2 is great not only for virtual photographers, but also for the production of films about the times of the late 19th century in the United States. The Enthusiasm group released a documentary about journalist Ida Bell Wells-Barnett, who fought against black lynching and for women’s rights.
The painting for 40 minutes tells about the life and times of Ida Bell Wells-Barnett. The film is named after her work, The Red Record, through which she brought attention to the growing amount of lynching in the United States over blacks in the South.
The plot is a retelling of Wells’ early life and the creation of The Red Record. In some places, the book is quoted verbatim, and at the end you can see how people from all over the States read a book that will have a great impact on the life of the country.
This work is further proof that games can be used and not only for their intended purpose.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
