See this film: Tchoupitoulas at the Brattle

In a sense, Bill and Turner Ross' Tchoupitoulas could be considered the documentary counterpart to Benh Zeitlin's highly touted, dreamlike fiction Beasts of the Southern Wild. In both films children venture into the wilds of Louisiana, one urban the other rural, with otherworldly results - and both films are strikingly sui generis in their spirit and style. In the Ross film, three boys venture into the nightlife of New Orleans, and their playful explorations take on a jazz-like spirit and structure. The directors will be on hand to discuss this challenging, exhilarating film when it screens as part of the DocYard series at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | Monday, July 16 @ 8 pm | $10; $8 students, seniors | 617.876.6837 or
