A new feature has been added to this week’s premiere of the documentary Up From The Streets.
The documentary’s Executive Producer, Terence Blanchard and its Producer/Director, Michael Murphy, will hold a free live question and answer session following Friday’s premiere of the presentation. The announcement of the session’s addition to the premiere was made Tuesday through a news release.
The event is planned to start at 7 p.m. EST. Since this portion of the presentation is free to the public, anyone who wants to take part can pre-book in advance here or just present questions during the event. The session will be available to view at 8 p.m. for those unable to take part in the meeting.
Up From The Streets: New Orleans — The City of Music will be presented Friday thought a partnership between Eagle Rock Entertainment and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. More than 90 theaters and record stores nationwide are scheduled to take part in the documentary’s premiere.
“Tickets” to watch the documentary are available at a price of $12 each, and can be purchased from viewers’ local theaters to watch the documentary in the comfort of their own homes. Tickets are available here. Viewers will have three days to finish the documentary once they have started watching.
Proceeds from the “ticket” sales will go to benefit the fund, which assists musicians who live and work in New Orleans who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation is a nonprofit organization that owns the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell. The agency has created the Jazz & Heritage Music Relief Fund to assist musicians and residents in New Orleans who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
Up From The Streets: New Orleans — The City of Music originally debuted in October at the 30th annual New Orleans Film Festival. It examines the city’s musical roots. Oscar-nominated and six-time Grammy Award-winning trumpet player Terence Blanchard serves as the documentary’s host. The program features archived footage from performances and interviews conducted by artists, such as Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino and Allen Toussaint among others to help tell the story of the city’s musical history. Michael Murphy directed and produced the presentation.
In anticipation of the debut of Up From The Streets: New Orleans — The City of Music, a playlist of songs from the documentary has been curated and is streaming now here.
