Lost Bayou Ramblers push the boundaries of Cajun music and breathe new life into the Louisiana French language through their genre-bending music. On Va Continuer! follows the recording journey of their latest album, Kalenda, where the Ramblers let us explore the modern Cajun lifestyle, and discover that this “dying” language may not be so dead after all.
“Creatively and musically, we want the film to shine a light on this incredible culture, and at the same time to feel like watching a long-form, rockin’ music video,” said director & cinematographer Bruno Doria.
“It feels so right to have our first in-house documentary be created alongside local artists and crew members, with Southern audiences in mind. It is truly a Louisiana story.” said producer Lizzie Guitreau. Andre and Louis Michot of Lost Bayou Ramblers (also producers) added, “We’re fortunate that our efforts to contribute to the culture of South Louisiana have been well received, and we’re glad to continue those efforts with this film.”
You can view Va Continuer! SUnday, February 17, 7 L45 PM at the Prytania Theatre. Tickets are $15 general admission; $12 admission for New Orleans Film Society Members, available at neworleansfilmsociety.org
