FLAGS, FEATHERS, AND LIES
Wednesday, May 2 at 7:30pm
In Person: Producer Julie Belafonte
and Director Pablo Palacios
Members: $9 / Public $13 / Includes Reception

It is the winner of the 2010 Langston Hughes African-American Festival Jury Award, and an official selection at nine international film festivals. Flags, Feathers, and
Lies is a film of which Sidney Poitier has said: "It is an enriching experience that takes you to the heart of the culture" and "I highly recommend it." Produced by civil rights activist Julie Belafonte, Flags, Feathers, and Lies presents the other side of New Orleans Mardi Gras the untold story of the African-American Mardi Gras Indians and their community fighting for their lives in the wake of
Katrina and political indifference. This is not about extravagant and luxurious carnivals, but a rich tradition extending back to slavery and solidarity with First Nations people. Featuring tribal chief, acclaimed saxophonist, and creative force behind HBO series Treme, Donald Harrison Jr., as well as tribal chief and community leader, Darryl Montana, Flags, Feathers, and Lies is a provocative,
passionate look at how the African-American community of New Orleans is preserving its unique heritage in the historic neighborhood of the  lower 9th ward. Flags, Feathers, and Lies is a Cimerron Cinema production, part of an ongoing series dedicated to honoring the legacy
of West African culture in the Americas. It is a personal commitment on behalf of Julie Belafonte, a lifelong civil rights activist who worked with Harry Belafonte, Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela. She is also a former member of the African-American Katherine Dunham Dance Company, and dance tutor to Alvin Ailey. USA, 2010, 108 min.; Director: Pablo Palacios; Producer: Julie Belafonte
