Documentary / English

Don’t miss this deeply-felt, sharp-witted portrait of a changing society.

In Mobile, Alabama, there are two annual Mardi Gras parades. One is organised and peopled by the city’s white families; the other, by the black community. Shocking, wry and enchanting by turns, Margaret Brown’s assured film examines the effort to integrate in a culture still hardwired to tradition – as well as introducing the strange phenomena that are moon pies and mystic clubs.
