Congratulations to director Tim Wolff on the release of his documentary film, The Sons of Tennessee Williams. The film tells the story of New Orleans' gay Mardi Gras Krewes, and through their history documents the fight for glbtq liberation in New Orleans.
Combining extraordinary footage of forty years of Mardi Gras balls and interviews with members of the Krewes, including especially glbtq.com contributor Albert Carey, the film demonstrates the seriousness beneath the apparent frivolity of the gay balls, which have come to be a significant element of the New Orleans Mardi Gras scene.
The film places the history of the Mardi Gras balls in the context of a struggle against oppression and reveals a political dimension to a tradition that may seem apolitical in the extreme.
The Sons of Tennessee Williams has been shown at several film festivals and on the PBS channel in New Orleans. It opens in New York at Quad Cinemas on W. 13th Street on October 7th, with a national release planned thereafter.Below is a trailer for the film:
