This joyful documentary on the history of music in French Southwest Louisiana has the energy of festival season and features Cajun and Zydeco greats, like Michael Doucet and BeauSoleil, Clifton Chenier, and many others. It embraces the generous spirit and colorful characters of a special and often forgotten cornerstone of American music. (dir. Les Blank, Chris Strachwitz, Maureen Gosling, U.S, 1989-2021, 84 min).

“Passion, humor and common sense illuminate this classic from national treasure Les Blank.” – NY Times
