It was filmed in late August and early September 2005, and premiered at the New Orleans Arena on August 16, 2006 and was first aired on HBO the following week. We will show parts 1 and 2 of the four part series followed by a conversation with the film’s archivist, Judith Aley.

The presenter, Judith Aley is an archival researcher and producer for documentary and feature films. Her credits range from many projects with Spike Lee including When the Levees Broke and his upcoming feature, The Black Klansman, the Showtime series on climate change, Years of Living Dangerously, Shola Lynch’s Free Angela & All Political Prisoners, Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story and sIcko, and Amir Bar Lev’s The Tillman Story.  She recently completed Nathaniel Kahn’s documentary about the contemporary art world, The Price of Everything, which premiered at Sundance 2018.
