“Louisiana Story: The Reverse Angle” Film Screening Feb 4th

On Wednesday, Feb. 4th, the LHC Documentary Series resumes with the 2009 LEH Documentary Film of the Year, Louisiana Story: The Reverse Angle. Directors Tika Laudun and Charles E. Richard will be on hand to discuss the film and answer questions.

This remarkable film has earned national acclaim from audiences and critics. It also has drawn national attention to Louisiana’s unique place in the history of documentary film. It received the 2008 Best Historical Documentary Award from the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival and will be featured in “Documentary Fortnight,” the annual exhibition of notable documentary films at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Louisiana Story offers a self-reflective study of the medium of documentary film, both as artistic expression and as a tool for humanities scholarship. Laudun and Richard have created a valuable piece of film criticism and scholarship – delivered in the very medium that it critiques.

The LHC is located at 938 Lafayette Street, on the corner of O’Keefe in the CBD. Doors open at 7pm and there will be a short reception following the film. Admission is $5 and reservations can be made with Brian Boyles at 504.620.2632 or boyles@leh.org.
