Among Les Blank’s masterworks, this celebration of the spirit and social traditions of New Orleans – featuring Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations – is an intense insider’s portrait of the city’s street celebrations and unique cultural gumbo of the Jazz Fest and Second-line parades.
Always for Pleasure captures lightning in a bottle, distilling the soul and spirit of what it means to celebrate life and death in New Orleans.
