Place Over Time: Perspectives on the South Through Film Burning Cane
/// November 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the New Orleans Film Society at the Ogden Museum on Tuesday, November 5 for a FREE film screening of “Burning Cane,” directed by 19-year-old New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts alum, Phillip Youmans. The screening will be followed by a conversation with actors, Dominique McClellan and Karen Kaia Livers.
This is the first event in the three-part film series, “Place Over Time: Perspectives on the South Through Film.” “Burning Cane,” starring Wendell Pierce, is set among the cane fields of rural Louisiana, where a deeply religious woman struggles to reconcile her convictions of faith with the love she has for her alcoholic son and troubled preacher.
Director Phillip Youmans became the youngest and the first African American director to win the Founder’s Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Tribeca Film Festival. The film received the Youth Film Grant through #CreateLouisiana last year, funded in part by the new Orleans Film Society, and was selected as the Centerpiece Film at the 30th-annual New Orleans Film Festival.
This event is free and open to the public, thanks to the generous support of The Helis Foundation. Limited seating is available on a first come, first seated basis.
