A multi-award winning documentary set in New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz, where music stopped in 2005 when one of the most deadly and destructive hurricanes in American history struck.
Many displaced musicians felt compelled to return to the chaos and bleak confusion to play again. This is the story of those who made it back, told in their own words, who fought to resuscitate the music scene.
Featuring Clarke Peters (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Dr John, Kermit Ruffins, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Irma Thomas, Hot 8 Brass Band and final interviews and performances from the late Walter Payton Jr, Wardell Quezergue, Herman ‘Roscoe’ Ernest III and ‘Uncle’ Lionel Batiste.
Plus Q&A with director Renee Edwards.
