from the article:
“Director Richard Barber’s The Whole Gritty City made its world premiere Oct. 12 at the 24th annual New Orleans Film Festival. The film follows three marching bands from local schools — O. Perry Walker High School, L.E. Rabouin High School and the Roots of Music — from 2007 to 2010, as the bands emerge after Hurricane Katrina and the federal floods, face violence in the streets and triumph on Carnival parade routes.”
the trailer looks great!
