Described by Les Blank himself as an “intense insider’s portrait of New Orleans’ street celebrations and unique cultural gumbo,” Always for Pleasure is one of the director’s most beloved films. Subtly and beautifully navigating the streets of New Orleans, Always for Pleasure takes us from the vibrancy of second-line parades down back streets, to jazz funerals, to pots of crawfish brewing with gallon jugs of hot sauce, to the glorious Mardi Gras Indian traditions. Featuring live music from legends such as Professor Longhair, the Wild Tchoupitoulas, the Neville Brothers and more, the film is a fantastic celebration of what New Orleans does best—celebrate. Showcasing Blank’s skill for finding the soul-satisfying stories, people and moments, Always for Pleasure blends the finest music to showcase this unique culture at its most glorious. Charlotte Cook
