'Hurricane Bianca' Makes Landfall
New Orleans has no shortage of drag royalty, but Bianca Del Rio (nee Roy Haylock) is the queen of queens, the Daenerys Targaryen of the NOLA scene. Del Rio made a national name for herself after wining Season 6 winner of “Rupaul's Drag Race.” On Friday (6.03), she is releasing a feature film, “Hurricane Bianca.”
2000's "On Hostile Ground" Foreshadowed Infrastructure Drama (Sort Of)
You might not know the name Sharon Y. Cobb, but she is a visionary as far New Orleans is concerned. Cobb predicted the city’s current spate of sinkholes 16 years ago in her oft neglected television masterwork “on Hostile Ground.” The masterwork followed the story of a NOLA technocrat and her battle to stop sinkholes from devouring the Crescent City. Perhaps some of it will sound familiar.
Big Oozy Film Drops Trailer
Today, the first trailer for Lionsgate’s “Deepwater Horizon” movie was released. The film appears to be a classic 70’s style disaster flick focused on the actual blowout and the rig workers or “real heroes” involved—glossing over the months of uncontrolled oil pumping into the gulf, the economic devastation that followed, criminal negligence, or the subsequent years of environmental damage.

Green Lights, Not White Flags

No White Flags at Sundance
Since 2011 when Steve Gleason was diagnosed with ALS, his battle with the disease has alternatively moved New Orleanians to tears and inspired us to greatness. Now, the rest of the world is learning Gleason’s story. “GLEASON,” a documentary about the local hero is dominating the Sundance Film Festival the same way that the former Saint dominated Atlanta on that fateful day in 2006.
There is no quiet on the set in Louisana right now. Big cuts to big screen tax credits are creating a big noise. In an effort to restore the lucrative inentive program, IATSE 478 issued a list of endorsements for Saturday's (11.21) election.
Wah Wah Wah
Trombone Shorty is no stranger to the cameras. However, the next on-screen appearance for the NOLA musician will actually be off-screen. The star also known to locals as Troy Andrews is responsible for the “voices” of every adult character in the upcoming Peanuts movie… and there is a slew of publicity to herald in his horn.
NOFF Spotlight: Habana Instant
By Christopher Louis Romaguera
Un Instante en La Habana (Habana Instant) is a narrative film set entirely in Cuba. The movie follows Carlos Quevedo (played by Christopher Marquez), who goes by Charlie, as he returns to Cuba where he was born. There, he meets up with his brother Marcelo, (played by Director Guillermo Ivan), who is less-than-warm upon his arrival. The brothers had been split up as children, with the mom taking Charlie with her to the United States on a raft, while Marcelo stayed behind in Cuba.
