"TCHOUPITOULAS" -- a new film by Bill & Turner Ross

“TCHOUPITOULAS” — a new film by Bill & Turner Ross
by the Ross Brothers & Co.

Category Documentary

Location New Orleans, LA

Down on the bayou

Tchoupitoulas tells the story of three young brothers from New Orleans who spend a runaway night in the French Quarter, where their eyes are opened to a magical new world of people and music. From burlesque dancers to brass bands to street musicians, the sounds tucked behind every corner are sure to woo you, as well. It’s as much a tale of personal awakening as it is a love letter to the culture and history of this famously musical city.

Making “hairstory”

Five years ago, photographer Michael July set out across America to capture the wide variety of creative individuals who choose to wear their hair au natural. He captured 240 subjects from virtually every origin, country, and age group, as well as their personal (often touching) stories. He calls his finished collection the “créme de la créme of afros” — a pictorial celebration of natural hair icons past and the spirit of the ‘do as it stands today.
