Film Screening: The Whole Gritty City

Date: Tuesday, February 2, 2016
Time: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Building: Woldenberg Art Center, Freeman Auditorium
Location: uptown campus

The Whole Gritty City is a 90-minute documentary that plunges viewers into the world of three New Orleans school marching bands. The film follows kids growing up in America's most musical city, and one of its most dangerous, as their band directors get them ready to perform in the Mardi Gras parades, and teach them to succeed and to survive. Navigating the urban minefield through moments of setback, loss, discovery, and triumph, these children and their adult leaders reveal the power and resilience of a culture. 


The film features three marching bands in the years after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city the  O. Perry Walker and L.E. Rabouin high school bands, and The Roots of Music, a new band for middle school-age children. These young beginners in Roots are put through their paces by the program's founder Derrick Tabb, drummer for the Grammy Award-winning Rebirth Brass Band.
