CCA Amplified: City of a Million Dreams
July 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15
In the next installment of CCA & Lost Padre Records’ music + film series, CCA Amplified, we’re proud to present a one-time special screening of City of a Million Dreams, a powerful documentary on how New Orleans jazz funerals and Sunday second line parades absorb the pain of death and the legacy of racism, soaring to the transcendent joy of rebirth. A 20-year endeavor for director Jason Berry, the film follows clarinetist Dr. Michael White and culture carrier Deb “Big Red” Cotton in a search for the city’s soul.
The film includes a live, in-person Q&A with musician Dr. Michael White, the film’s director, Jason Berry, and CCA Head of Cinema Programming, Luke Henley. Read more about the speakers here.
CCA Amplified is presented in partnership with Lost Padre Records.
