Additional Information

Buckjumping takes the pulse of present-day New Orleans by turning to its dancers—the men and women who embody the rhythm of the city and prove it on the streets every chance they get. The feature-length documentary follows various New Orleans communities as they exalt in their distinct form of dance in a variety of contexts: mourners at a jazz funeral, a high school dance troupe in a parade, and New Orleans bounce and drag cultures. It also includes first-person insights from DJs, musicians, and dancers who forge community and find spiritual transcendence in their dance traditions.

New Orleans–based filmmaker Lily Keber and New Orleans high school dance teacher Cheyenne Lewis will participate in a Q&A following the screening.
