The Ross Brother’s Western provides deep insight in to the lives of these two remarkable individuals, as well as the community to which they belong.
Pitched somewhere between a documentary and a fever dream, Bill and Turner Ross’ Tchoupitoulas is one of those rare cinematic experiences: a true original. Pushing the boundaries of what qualifies as a documentary while still staying true to the purest form of fly-on-the-wall cinema verite, the film is a wholly unique experience. At once an abstract art piece and childish flight of whimsy, it’s a movie that begs to be soaked up and adored by any film lover.
Dork Shelf talks to Tchopitoulas co-director Turner Ross about the latest documentary he made with his brother Bill and what it's like to film with kids in the almost magical city of New Orleans.
