The Order Of Myths

5 - And finally, the documentary, The Order Of Myths, an intriguing 2008 film that examines the time-honored tradition of Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama, where celebrations remain segregated between white and black residents. 


Directed by Margaret Brown, the film takes a look at the history and present-day reality of these 2 still very much segregated worlds of Mardi Gras in Mobile, AL., and explores the secret societies, the fancy-dress balls and the celebratory parades, all telling a story that is at once very site-specific, and seemingly simple, but is as richly complex, and even representative of the USA itself.

Here's its trailer:
