Insignia Films Storytelling that Sheds Light on the Human Condition

New Orleans
New Orleans – the utterly original American city that lies at the mouth of the mighty Mississippi and at the beating heart of the great American experiment. Walled in on almost all sides by water, pressed together by the demands and dangers of geography, the crowded streets of New Orleans have always been a laboratory where the social forces that characterize American life play out in dramatic and, at times, disastrous fashion. With the documentary film New Orleans, Insignia Films and American Experience tell the story of this unique and beloved city, exploring both its distinctive history and culture, and illuminating its central place on the American landscape.
