Inside The Arts: French Film Fest, Boyd|Satellite Gallery, Black Orpheus Mardi Gras Ball

Feb 12, 2019

This week on Inside the Arts, the Prytania Theatre is ground zero for the 22nd New Orleans French Film Festival. We get a sneak peek at French language films from around the globe with Fallon Young, executive director of the New Orleans Film Society.

Then, we take a long and winding road to a Julia Street art gallery.  Boyd|Satellite is closing its doors with a final exhibit, Number Nine Dream, paying  homage to former Beatle, John Lennon.  Co-owners Ginette Bone and Blake Boyd will join us.

And, the Music Box Village kicks off a new season! It opens on Valentine's Day with a visit from Casa Samba and members of the North Side Skull and Bone Gang performing at its Black Orpheus Mardi Gras Ball. Producer Leah Hennessy and co-director Jay Pennington stop by for a chat.

 Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m., Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m., and Thursdays at 8:45 a.m.
