It's been too long since the Ross Brothers brought us 45365, a film that lyrically documented the life of a small Ohio town over the course of a year. With Tchoupitoulas, they boldly capture the expansive dynamics of New Orleans all within one very long night. The film follows three young brothers (with a comical lack of adult supervision) as they venture to explore the nightlife in and around the French Quarter. What was supposed to be a regular evening out gets complicated when they miss the last ferry home.  Stranded, they continue through town and meet with all walks of life: drunks, evangelists, lunatics, and street musicians. This colorful window into the world leads them to ponder what kind of people they'll grow up to be. Brilliantly shot and assembled, Tchoupitoulas is a poetic sensory experience not to be missed.
