The People Present is our monthly screening series, featuring films selected by an eclectic group of extraordinary individuals who impact our lives in New Orleans in large and small ways.


The People Present #1: DJ Soul Sister Presents WATTSTAX, the acclaimed 1973 documentary about a major benefit concert organized by Stax Records in August 1972, timed to counter the 7th anniversary of the Watts riots in Los Angeles. Affectionately referred to as the "Black Woodstock," the Wattstax concert and film features performances by Stax recording artists, superstars of soul, blues, and gospel such as Isaac Hayes, the Staple Singers, and Albert King. 

Coming Soon...
