In partnership with OffBeat, the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) and WWOZ, the New Orleans Film Society will present a new music documentary film series.
“Seeing Music” will celebrate New Orleans’ hometown heroes by showcasing films by and about locals in music.
On March 14, Lily Keber‘s award-winning “Buckjumping” will be screened. Keber will lead a conversation about the film after the screening, along with participants in the documentary. The film had its World Premiere in October 2018 at the 29thNew Orleans Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award for Best Louisiana Documentary Feature and the Best Cinematography Prize (Louisiana Feature).
There will be a third screening on April 11, though details are still pending and will be announced soon.
