The Whole Gritty City (feature film)
Directors of three New Orleans marching bands prepare students to perform in the Mardi Gras parades. What emerges is a dramatic, music-filled story of children struggling to reach adulthood in one of America’s most impoverished and violent cities. Navigating the minefield of everyday urban life through moments of setback, loss, discovery, and triumph, these children and their adult leaders reveal the power and resilience of a culture.
