December is all about spectacle and awards season seriousness, but if you need a reprieve from Hollywood's expensive grab for box office and awards, Oscilloscope Laboratories has something daringly off the beaten path and refreshingly original.

Bill and Turner Ross' "Tchoupitoulas" takes the simple approach of following three boys in New Orleans over the course of an evening, and uses it to paint a impressionistic document both of the city and these kids as life swirls and tumbles around them. We caught the film at SXSW in the spring, and it really captured our attention, and we declared that it's "a documentary experiment that pushes the boundaries of storytelling and form to transform cinema into sensation." And as you'll see in this exclusive clip below, the final result is something of a waking dream.

"Tchoupitoulas" opens in limited release on December 7th. And in case you missed it, here's our interview with directors.
