The Order of Myths
Although “Mardi Gras” immediately brings to mind New Orleans for most people, the first Mardi Gras in America was actually held in Mobile, Ala., over 300 years ago. Remarkably, even in 2007, the festivities remain racially segregated, with two pairs of kings and queens — one black, one white. Filmmaker Margaret
Brown takes us through the divided zones of Mobile’s current Mardi Gras celebrations as numerous participants attempt to initiate an integration between black and white revelers.
Watch on Available on MUBI, Prime Video, and Fandora
