eeting for the first time in two years, the New
Orleans Saints and the Chicago Bears go toe-totoe on Soldier Field in Chicago this October 6.
The Saints won 30-13 the last time they played Da Bears in
2011, but they may not claim quite the landslide win this
time around. Chicago recently added several new players
to balance out their offensive line. The addition of tight end
Martellus Bennett and quarterback Jay Cutler may give New
Orleans some trouble at Soldier Field. But the Saints also
have a strong offense, and with Sean Payton back on the
sidelines, they should be able to pull through once more. S

to take Block down, Richie must try to outsmart the two forces
working against each other in Runner Runner. Directed by Brad

ovember 22, 1963 is the day President
John F. Kennedy was assassinated
in Dallas, Texas. Parkland recounts
the events that happened on that fateful
day, but not just from the Kennedys’ or the
media’s perspectives. The drama brings to life
the stories of the ordinary people who were
thrown into involvement in that day’s historychanging events, from the doctors who treated
the President, to the cameraman who caught
the assassination on film, to the brother of the
killer himself. Directed by Peter Landesman

COME TO THE
NEW ORLEANS
FILM FESTIVAL 2013
by Lindsey Hopton
Writer/director Mac Alsfeld (right) stars in Father-Like Son
I
n its most successful year yet, the New Orleans Film Festival continues to
grow. An incredible 1,500 submissions were entered, fighting for a spot in
one of two hundred slots. Now in its twenty-fourth year, the annual event has
gotten some serious attention. Named one of the “25 Film Festivals Worth the
Entry Fee” by Movie Maker Magazine and “Fifteen Fests You Should Enter” by
Premium Beat, all eyes are on New Orleans. Starting October 10, the eight-day
festival will kick off at the recently reopened, historic Civic Theatre. Stay tuned
for a new mobile app that will make keeping up with the event much easier.
While the festival is full of great films worth your times, here are some of most
anticipated films that will be playing at the 2013 New Orleans Film Festival.
Twelve Years A Slave
What better fit to open NOFF than an autobiographical drama capturing
Louisiana’s own powerful-yet-painful history? Taking us back before the
Civil War, Steve McQueen’s Twelve Years a Slave follows Solomon Northup
(Chiwetel Ejiofor), a born-free black man who falls under a slave trader’s hoax
when he was told of a promising job with a traveling circus. Kidnapped from his
residency in Upstate New York, the talented, fiddling carpenter is thrown into
the chokehold of slavery. He is beaten, drugged and bound across the plantations
of Louisiana. Following the publication of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Northup’s
documented journey has been published and praised as a literary force that
plays a significant historical role in opening up the national debate over slavery.
The new film promises to rekindle a discussion too often left to historians. 

A Warehouse on Tchoupitoulas
The date is January 30, 1970 and the fans are rolling in by the
thousands. It’s opening night. The lineup consists of Fleetwood
Mac, The Flock and The Grateful Dead. What follows next is an
infamous twelve-year run of unbelievable performances, including
artists like The Who, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Black Sabbath,
Talking Heads, The Doors, Dr. John, Jethro Tull and many more.
After a five-year journey of self-taught filmmaking, Jessy Cale
Williamson’s documentary about a legendary New Orleans music
venue, known as The Warehouse, is finally ready to make its debut.
Told through the stories of former owners, employees, musicians
and fans, A Warehouse on Tchoupitoulas captures the life and death
of a time that some of us can only imagine - an unbeatable time
in history when musical history and the Crescent City collide.
Father-Like Son
Post-college transitions are hard, but it’s even worse for Clark, played
by writer/director/thesp Mac Alsfed. His new stepdad is young enough to
be his peer. Soon after her husband’s death, Clark’s mom, Helen (Ramona
Tyler), marries a twenty-four-year-old inventor named Dan, a “man” eager
to provide Clark with parental guidance. Falling under the pressure of his
“parents,” Clark is forced to put his writing ambitions aside to find a job.
Then he meets Emily (Molly Connaro), a beautiful, quickwitted girl who
just might change Clarke’s pessimistic views on life and love. Filmed in New
Orleans, Father-Like Son is one of our most anticipated films of the fest,
earning a spot for Alsfeld and Connaro on the cover of this week’s Scene Weekly.
Visitors
Fans of the Qatsi trilogy will be elated to see another collaboration
between legendary director Godfrey Reggio and legendary composer
Philip Glass. Their newest film is Visitors. Reggio made a name for
himself in the 1980s by pairing distinguished composer Glass to
footage of slow motion and time-lapsed backdrops of natural and
manmade wonders, including breathtaking photography of cityscapes.
Reggio, a New Orleans native, chose to shoot part of Visitors in the
Crescent City. Similar to its predecessors, the highly anticipated
film will be full of rich imagery coupled with compelling music.

Kill Your Darlings
First premiering at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, the little-known
story of one particular homicidal incident is told in Kill Your Darlings.
Helmed by first-time feature director John Krokidas, the film is sure to
live up to its sharp and thrilling title. The story, involving beat generation
poets Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs, stars Daniel
Radcliffe, Elizabeth Olsen, David Cross, Michael C. Hall, Ben Foster
and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Kill Your Darlings will be theatrically released
following the New Orleans Film Festival, but you can see it first at the fest.
Nebraska
Oscar-winning filmmaker Alexander Payne, noted for his previous
works Sideways and Descendants, has critics falling for his next gambit
Nebraska. Nominated for the Palme d’Or, Nebraska saw its lead
Bruce Dern win Best Actor at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The
film follows a father and son duo (Dern and Will Forte) whose 

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom
Starring the always excellent Idris Elba, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom has continued to build
festival buzz after it premiered at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival. Applauded for his powerful
performance, Elba plays former South African president and civil rights hero Nelson Mandela,
author and subject of the 1994 book Long Walk to Freedom, on which the long-awaited film is based.
Bayou Maharajah: The Tragic Genius of James Booker
Lily Keber’s Bayou Maharajah may just be the perfect ending to the fest. Trapped in a time consumed
by racial tension, James Booker had to endure many prejudices. Described as “the best black, gay, oneeyed junkie piano genius New Orleans has ever produced,” Booker will not be forgotten after audiences
experience this powerful documentary. Doused in unseen footage, recordings, exclusive interviews and
personal photos, Keber’s film gives viewers a rare look at what many mid-century New Orleans minority
musicians had to endure. Unlike any performance we’ve ever seen, Bayou Maharajah is sure to break the
silence on what should have been: the unfortunate and tragic genius of an oft forgotten cultural icon.

TRAVEL AGENCY HELPS KEEP ECONOMIC
IMPACT IN LOUISIANA by Susan Ross
W
hile many of their employees are local hires, film and
television shows shooting in Louisiana still have significant
travel needs. Each project flies in producers, directors,
actors and specialists that live in Los Angeles, New York or abroad.
Some of them stay for months. Others stay for only a day or two.
Because Louisiana’s film tax credits are only earned on dollars
spent in state, producers are very particular about where production
dollars are spent. A first class flight booked through an online travel
portal is an expense paid to an out-of-state entity, so no tax credits
are earned because the money isn’t spent in Louisiana. But a flight
booked through a Louisiana travel agency does earn tax credits,
allowing the local economy to capture the film’s entire travel budget.
“The impact of the entertainment industry on us has been
substantial,” says Karen Peeler Wild of Lagniappe Travel Services, a New
Orleans area travel agency and concierge service. “The tax incentives
the film industry receives for doing business locally have allowed us
to have significant growth that we would not have otherwise seen.”
Wild’s company, Lagniappe Travel, has done business in Louisiana for
a quarter century. “We provide exceptional service and make our clients
the priority,” says Wild. “Our goal from inception has always been to make
sure each and every travel experience exceeds our clients expectations.”
Wild first started to connect with the entertainment industry in
early 2008. Five years later, it accounts for twenty-five percent of
Lagniappe Travel’s business. “We have worked with a diverse group of
entertainment companies, include major film productions, television
programs, independent films, as well as tour and concert related
business,” says Wild. “Our experienced Entertainment Group is well
versed in coordinating air, hotel and ground transportation logistics to
ensure that production stays on-schedule at the lowest cost possible.”
The films Lagniappe have serviced include the upcoming
feature films 2 Bedroom 1 Bath, starring Eric Roberts, Dee Wallace
and Costas Mandylor, the horror flick The Monkey’s Paw, starring
Avatar’s Stephen Lang and Charles S. Dutton, and New Orleans
producer/director Oley Sassone’s Tarantula, starring Danny Trejo,
Billy Zane and Q’orianka Kilcher. A host of reality shows and
touring concerts have also booked services offered by Lagniappe.
Wild says that servicing the oft-chaotic and sometimes exotic
needs of the entertainment industry has kept her team flexible.
“If there’s a will, there’s a way,” she says of her company’s concierge
services, which extend far beyond simply booking flights. “We
have had cars dropped off and picked up from clients no matter
where they are located, from Grand Isle to the swamps of Pearl
River. Recently, a client was coming in to scout locations during
Essence Festival and we were able to find them a local hotel offering
the summer rate of $109, instead of the festival rate of $320.”
Though the entertainment industry, companies require more
attention than some other sectors of the economy. The new business
is worth it. A film industry that was nonexistent ten years ago now
spends over a billion dollars annually in Louisiana, allowing companies
like Lagniappe Travel Services to grow during the national economic
recession. For more information on how Lagniappe Travel Services is
helping the entertainment industry, visit www.lagniappetravel.com. S
