Rivertown Film presents Guardians of the Flame

On Wednesday, December 13, 8:00pm, Rivertown Film will screen Guardians of the Flame, a documentary initiated 17 years ago by Oscar-winning filmmaker Jonathan Demme that explores three generations of the Harrison family, celebrated activists, artists and educators from New Orleans. The project was completed by Director Daniel Wolf, edited by Martha Rizi and produced by Bonnie Elder Yassky and Jonathan’s son Brooklyn Demme.

Undeterred by decades of prejudice, post-Katrina neglect, and ongoing appropriation of their traditions, three generations of the extraordinary, multi-talented Harrison family guard their legacy and define what Black masking culture means in New Orleans today.

Visit rivertownfilm.org for information or to purchase tickets: General admission: $13, Seniors: $11, Members of Rivertown Film: $9
