Synopsis

'If the musicians ain't got a chance to live, then what chance has the music got?' Dr John. This is a beautifully crafted, feature documentary, rich with colourful characters, and set in the iconic musical backdrop of New Orleans. In 2005 the music stopped, when one of the most deadly and destructive hurricanes in American history struck. The flood defences failed flooding the Crescent City for weeks. Lives were lost and shattered. Many displaced musicians felt compelled to return to the chaos and bleak confusion to play again. This is the story of some who made it back, told in their own words, with those who fought alongside to resuscitate the music scene; In particular the founders of The New Orleans Musicians' Clinic, a unique medical facility with the motto, 'Keeping the music alive'. —Renee Edwards

Amazing heritage

Worth seeing for footage of those no longer here who contributed to the amazing music and culture that makes New Orleans.

Beautifully told

This is a beautifully shot and told film which takes a refreshingly different look at the issues surrounding New Orleans post Hurricane Katrina. It explores issues such as healthcare and death in a suprisingly upbeat way. Renee is a great film maker and her award winning film deserves all the praise a thousand times over.
