Where does documentary end, and reality and dreams begin? That is the question many will be asking after experiencing "Tchoupitoulas," the latest documentary from Bill and Turner Ross, the makers of the small town portrait "45365." After drawing rave reviews at SXSW where it premiered earlier this year and winning awards at the Dallas, Ashland and Hot Docs film festivals, Oscilloscope Laboratories is bringing the picture to theaters, and the first trailer will you a glimpse of the special film they have put together.

"Tchoupitoulas" follows three boys in New Orleans, who venture through the city all in one night, in what becomes less a movie about and more an impressionistic document of a particular feeling or moment in the lives of these kids. In our thumbs up review from SXSW, we called it "an experimental, dreamy melange of the sights and sounds of New Orleans," and unlike your average documentary. And indeed, for anyone looking for something outside the everyday, this will fit the bill. Here's the official synopsis:

Tchoupitoulas is a lyrical documentary that follows three adolescent brothers as they journey through one night in New Orleans, encountering a vibrant kaleidoscope of dancers, musicians, hustlers, and revelers parading through the lamplit streets. The filmmakers fully immerse us into the New Orleans night, passing through many lively and luminous locations and introducing us to the people who make the city their home.

"Tchoupitoulas" opens on December 7th at the IFC Center in New York City. Watch below and find out more about the film at the official website.
