Here’s a Kickstarter project that looks worthwhile (details, including video with some nice clips, here):
“We Won’t Bow Down” is a feature length documentary on the past, present and future of the Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans.
What we are doing:
We are raising money to finish production of the feature length documentary “We Won’t Bow Down” which is six years in the making. This is an exceptionally long schedule for a film, but it has been necessary to properly explore the depth of the extremely secretive Mardi Gras Indian culture.
Why we are doing this:
“We Won’t Bow Down” has been a labor of love and we believe the film is a vehicle to carry the Mardi Gras Indian message of resistance through art, community, hope and healing to the world – while also faithfully documenting an amazing culture.
