Black Indians Black Indians

Jo Béranger, Hugues Poulain, Édith Patrouilleau / France / 2018 / 92 min / English

The documentary pays tribute to the American Indian spirits on American soil, as great tribal chieftains do. The film is filled with music, dance and joy, and it takes us to the roots of “call and response”, one of the last remaining traditions of African music culture, which also served as a source of inspiration for jazz.

In the heart of New Orleans, the tribes of “Black Indians” keep and transmit the African and American Indian tradition that fuses tenacity and spirituality, a sense of music and creativity. During Mardi Gras and on Saint Joseph's Day, they parade in the streets like angels, dressed as American Indians from dreams, with handmade pearl and feather costumes made for them by the whole community throughout the year.

The film—referred to by its director as a “comedy with no clowns, a tragedy without the antagonists”—is a wonderfully unpredictable family-themed tragicomedy about the conflicts that inevitably arise between the haves and the have-nots. A recipient of the Golden Palm at the most recent Cannes festival and a critics’ favourite of the year.
