6:00pm
New Orleans: Jazz Funerals From The Inside
Dir. David M. Jones, 1995, 59 mins.
This program thoroughly looks at the rich and colorful development of a historical tradition that has become an icon of the Crescent City. Hosted and narrated by Milton Batiste, Jr. the late trumpet player/manager of Dejan's Olympia Brass Band, Jazz Funerals from the Inside tells of... this fascinating celebration of death from the perspective of musicians, family and scholars. The program was given the highest rating by the New Orleans Times-Picayune and has been a local PBS staple for membership drives since 1995.

7:30pm
Sound After the Storm
Dir. Patrik Soergel, Ryan Fenson-Hood, Sven O. Hill, 2009, 80 mins.
Three years after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans is part ghost town and part third world country. Well known musicians Lillian Boutté, Dr. Michael White and photographer Armand "Sheik" Richardson use jazz as a philosophy and tool to save themselves and their abandoned, crumbling city. The Sound After the Storm tells a story in which this "music born of slavery" is reborn in response to Katrina's devastation.

AFTER THE FILM:
Q&A with Today dir. Naftali Beane Rutter

Part of a two-part series which sheds a spotlight on hip hop (and its cultural and political antecedents), from a region engulfed in environmental siege with centuries old roots and a New South identity. After considering hip hop's southern migration and local variations, Country Rap transitions into Katrina: Five Years Later, a selection of films that document New Orleans' rich history, lending further gravity to those made in response to the devastation of New Orleans, and efforts towards recovery.
