CITY OF A MILLION DREAMS
One Night Only Oct 28

Journalist, filmmaker (Vows of Silence), and author Jason Berry will be present for the one night screening of his new documentary on the history and transcendent sounds of jazz funerals in New Orleans. The way into this little-known world is provided by two local icons. Deb 'Big Red' Cotton is a passionate chronicler of the bands that solemnly escort the dead to church, and joyfully lead them to the cemetery and rebirth. Dr. Michael White, educator and wailing clarinetist, digs into the past with recreations of the ring dances of enslaved Africans. Back in the present, a parade shooting turns into a search for the city's soul.
