COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Avec Elspeth Leacock, une jeune fille de 16 ans est couronnée reine du bal du Mardi Gras à la Nouvelle Orléans.

"In 1970 I went to New Orleans with Noel Parmentel to shoot fragments of the The Moviegoer. While we were down there my daughter Elspeth and I went to visit some friends of mine whose teenager daughter was to be Queen of a fancy Mardi Gras ball. I didn’t know anything about this, but my friends thought it would be a nice idea if we filmed it. So we went over for an evening; black tie, dinner gown and all the rest of it. We changed a few light bulbs in the house and unobtrusively filmed the evening. I ended up making a 12-minute short with my daughter Elspeth taking sound." (Richard Leacock)
