Act-ivism: Social Change Film Festival Begins in New Orleans

Today through Sunday, venues across the city will host films and discussions dealing with an issue all too familiar to New Orleanians—water.
Mat Wit: No Footage, But Plenty of Insight in Doc About The Replacements
The annals of rock ‘n roll are divided between the bands that seem so close you feel like you could touch them, and the bands that you couldn’t reach with a ten-foot pole. Famed Minneapolis quartet The Replacements add a third dimension to that continuum. They’re the band that you wouldn’t want to touch. The side effects could be self destructive. Opting out of concert footage, band interviews or even photos, Color Me Obsessed: A Film About the Replacements, which finishes up a two-night stand at Zeitgeist Multidisciplinary Arts Center tonight, manages to keep the legendary band at arm’s length, while still heightening their legend.
