Les Vues, the free film series at Vermilionville is back! Our first selection for 2023 is a must-see. Winner of the Louisiana Filmmaker Award, Royce Osborn’s All on A Mardi Gras Day tells the story of New Orleans’ black carnival, from Congo Square to post-Katrina. This award-winning documentary mixes interviews with Big Chiefs, Zulu Kings and other carnival maskers with amazing archival footage and classic New Orleans music. The free film runs an hour, and after the film, Alton “Tiger” Armstrong will speak on his experiences as Big Chief of the Lafayette Mardi Gras Indians.
