UMS on Film: Fauborg Treme: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans (2008, Dawn Logsdon, 69 min)
During slavery, Faubourg Tremé was both home to the largest community of free African American people in the Deep South and a hotbed of political ferment. The film follows New Orleans Times Picayune columnist Lolis Eric Elie as he begins to renovate an historic house in Tremé and in the process becomes obsessed with the area's mysterious and neglected past. The film was executive produced by Wynton Marsalis.
This program is part of the UMS on Film series designed to expand understanding of the artists and cultures represented on the UMS season. Each film is introduced by a cultural expert and reveals something of the emotions and ideas behind the creative process. For more information, please visit http://www.ums.org.
