SEASON 1, EPISODE 1
Three months after the devastating impact of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans holds the first second-line parade. Cutting between long takes of the gathering procession and close-ups of musicians, Holland conjures the atmosphere of being in the midst of it all. As the narrative unfolds she lets us into the life of the community rebuilding itself – this is close up, honest and with a stunning soundtrack.
