As an Aussie who lived in New Orleans for about five months in 2015, I was very excited to see this at the Melbourne International Film Festival.<br/><br/>However, I did struggle to engage with any of the participants the film follows and felt that there was nothing really driving the film and it felt quite aimless.<br/><br/>The black and white photography is crisp and sharp and it creates a sombre, stiffling effect.<br/><br/>We follow members of the black community in different parts of NOLA from black panthers at meetings and working on the streets with the homeless to a woman under pressure to keep her bar running to two young brothers roaming their neighbourhood.<br/><br/>There just wasn&#39;t enough going on story wise to keep me engaged in the characters lives.
