The 30th New Orleans Film Festival kicked off this week, and one of the centerpiece movies is Burning Cane. The film’s director is 19-year-old New Orleans native Phillip Youmans, who won the prestigious Founders Award at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. NolaVie’s David Benedetto invited Phillip into the studio upon his return back home for the film festival.
