Percolating with electric performances, this doc wraps the tale of the band Papa Grows Funk and its breakup into a larger story about New Orleans music, crystallizing the tension between the ease of being a working musician in a city that supports homegrown talent like no other and the frustration that can come with wanting more than that. Awards: Depth Of Field International Film Festival - September 2017 - Award: Exceptional Merit New Orleans Film Festival - October 2017 - Audience Award Winner Southern States Indie FanFilmFest - January 2018 - Award: Best Soundtrack SF IndieFest - February 2018 - Audience Award Winner San Francisco Frozen Film Festival - July 2018 - Award: Best Music Documentary " This documentary, in all truthfulness, is the story of most of our lives as New Orleans musicians over the last fifty years. New Orleans Musicians, as well versed as we are in our craft, have a hard time breaking into the mainstream music scene. That causes frustrations which are honestly portrayed in this movie. This movie represents not just this band but our collective reality." - George Porter, Jr., The Meters "Just like John Gros and the music of Papa Grows Funk itself, the film explodes with the life, rhythm, and soul of New Orleans." - Quint Davis, Producer and Director, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=357763 Symphony Space Symphony Space
