A wide-eyed odyssey through nocturnal New Orleans.
DIRECTED BY BILL AND TURNER ROSS
A SXSW Grand Jury Prize-winner, and one of the hottest tickets at Hot Docs 2012, Bill and Tuner Ross’ Tchoupitoulas is a beguiling evocation of the wonderment of boyhood. Returning to the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema this week for a three-show run, the Ross brothers’ follow-up to the similarly acclaimed 45365 invites audiences to tag along as three adolescent siblings embark on nocturnal odyssey through New Orleans. With an impressionistic, deeply immserive vérité style, the co-directors capture the Big Easy’s uniquely vibrant brand of revelry as seen through the teen trio’s wide eyes. And when the boys miss the last ferry home, Tchoupitoulas sees their French Quarter all-nighter become our vicarious adventure.
