As we wrap up our festival run, we are delighted to be able to screen these companion pieces together at one festival at home - “Ripe Figs” and “Dr. Chevalier’s Lie” are true Louisiana pieces. We were a local cast and crew, we were blessed with historic locations, and our inspiration, Kate Chopin, a famous, groundbreaking Louisiana author.
The Black Film Festival of New Orleans runs Dec 19-23, and specific times and venues will be announced soon! Congrats to everyone!
***Important Edit - We are thrilled to learn that the Black Film Festival of New Orleans, recognizing the significance of the overall project, is screening these films back to back, as they were intended as companion pieces.***
