2020123 minutes

Italian-born, American based filmmaker Roberto Minervini’s follow-up to his Texas Trilogy is a portrait of African-Americans in New Orleans struggling to maintain their unique cultural identity and to find social justice. Weaving masterfully between four wrenching storylines in New Orleans, the film observes Judy Hill, who strives to keep her family and friends afloat (financially, as much as emotionally) as her bar is threatened; the two young brothers Ronaldo and Titus, whose neighborhood is plagued by violence; Kevin, the Big Chief of the Indian tradition of Mardi Gras, who is keeping the cultural heritage of his people alive; and The New Black Panthers, who carry out a door-to-door people's investigation of a killing attributed to white supremacists.
