Watch The Order of Myths
This is a documentary that takes the viewer to Mobile, Alabama, which is the original starting place of Mardi Gras, although it features a very different atmosphere of that in New Orleans. Mobile is still an almost entirely segregated city and as such, its celebrations are segregated as well. The filmmaker takes the audience though the differences in the way that blacks and whites celebrate, and brings up the question of the deep seeded racism that still exists in the American South. It also tries to seek solutions to the problem of racism.
