A thoughtful documentary examining the repressive aftermath of Hurricane Katrina through the lens of New Orleans’ musicians. Despite the resurgence of jazz in the city, conditions are generally hostile towards the success of its seasoned artists and musicians, with poverty, a waning culture and, more poignantly, an indifferent healthcare system, being a handicap to their survival. Multi award-winning editor Renee Edwards’ directorial debut is a beautifully rich and intimate portrait of the music scene and its endangered remnant. Renee Edwards (Director) and Ray Russell (Composer) join us for a Q&A after the film. Neal Richardson will be entertaining us with his keyboard in the Arts Bar from 7pm.
Show starts at 7.30 pm, ticket prices £8.50 & £7.00 (concessions).
