Wow! IF you love New Orleans, you have to see this film!
I'd never heard of this documentary or the director...but I bought it on a whim online (www.tremedoc.com) recently because I've been reading all about the upcoming HBO series Treme and my newspaper cited this documentary as essential viewing in preparation for the series - to learn more about the area. They weren't kidding. This show totally blew me away. I feel like my understanding of jazz, history and my country have been turned upside down. Can't wait to watch the HBO show tonight to see how they handle the subject. Glad I watched the real story before the fiction one started. The real story is about a community that has survived unbelievable hardships and given America unbelievable gifts. The most famous of those is jazz. But there are so many more completely unknown and forgotten gifts. I don't want to spoil it by spelling out each one. See the show yourself! You won't regret it.
