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.
The series begins on February 5 with “Closeup: Tank & the Bangas.” The screening will be followed by a conversation with Tank and the Bangas and director Charlie Steiner (of WWOZ). This will be moderated by Derrick Freeman.
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.
There will be a third screening on April 11, though details are still pending and will be announced soon.
Each screening will have an opening reception at 7 p.m., followed by the film itself at 7:30 p.m.
Admission is FREE for New Orleans Film Society members and NOCCA students, and $2 for WWOZ members. Tickets are available to the public for $10 or become a member of the New Orleans Film Society at neworleansfilmsociety.org/become-a-member.
