All on a Mardi Gras Day is the definitive documentary on New Orleans' black carnival traditions: the Mardi Gras Indians, the Zulu krewe, the Baby Dolls and Skeletons, told by the people who put it on. The film explains the origins of these colorful traditions, from African retention in Congo Square, to post Katrina New Orleans. All with a lively backbeat of New Orleans funk. This award-winning documentary was originally aired on PBS stations. Now available on DVD, it contains a full hour of extra material.
