NAGB Summer Film Series continues with Always For Pleasure and Junkanoo: The Heartbeat of A People

Holly Bynoe

This Thursday starting at 8 pm guests will be treated to a double screening of two documentaries examining the ways two different cities celebrate their versions of Carnival. In “Always For Pleasure” independent filmmaker Les Blank takes a loving look at the sights and sounds of New Orleans, where masquerade is embraced in the city’s way through Mardi Gras. “Always For Pleasure” is 58 minutes long and is rated B.

Following "Always For Pleasure” will be Maria Govan’s “Junkanoo: The Heartbeat of a People.” Through a tapestry of interviews with a diverse body of characters, the film explores Junkanoo’s historical, social, political, culture and spiritual impact on Bahamian life. Govan’s film is 62 minutes long. Co-producer of the film Erika M. Robinson will be available for a short Q&A session after the screening.

All films are free to attend and begin at 8 p.m. To make your experience that much more enjoyable; we will be offering popcorn and refreshments for sale.a
