Synopsis
The first Mardi Gras in America was celebrated in Mobile, Alabama in 1703. In 2007, it is still racially segregated. Tracing the exotic world of secret mystic societies and centuries-old traditions and pageantry; diamond-encrusted crowns, voluminous, hand-sewn gown, surreal masks and enormous paper mache floats, a tangled web of historical violence and power dynamics is uncovered, elusive forces that keep this hallowed tradition organized along enduring color lines.
