Late one night three teenage boys sneak out of the house and take the ferry across the water to embark upon a clandestine adventure through the French Quarter in New Orleans. We participate in their wonderment as they begin a forbidden night of peeking behind cabaret curtains and playing in back alleys, encountering burlesque dancers, hustlers, drag queens and street musicians as they go. The beauty of Tchoupitoulas (pronounced chop-ih-TOOL-us) is that the Ross Bros’ modern vérité style allows us to re-experience childish wonder, the camaraderie of adventure and the joy of discovery. Subtle and gorgeously enveloping, Tchoupitoulas is a nighttime piggyback ride through a city of music, debauchery and dancing, with a cast of characters and an atmosphere that only New Orleans could offer.
