Flags, Feathers, and Lies

80 min - USA Pablo Palacios

A provocative look at the Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans - in all their rich, resplendent, and rhythmic glory - and how they and the community they love have survived the twin disasters of Hurricane Katrina and government neglect. The culture of the lower 9th ward comes from a heritage that merges African and Native American traditions and has combined celebration with solidarity.
