Ever want to learn how to make head cheese? The Moon-Randolph Homestead presents a Tribute to Les Blank at The Roxy Theater. Come out and see two great documentaries on Cajun life in 1960's/70's Louisiana. Why, you may ask, are we showing these films? Well, come see for yourself. There's a connection.
Dry Wood is a 'portrait of black Creole life in the Louisiana Delta, accompanied by the hot sounds of Zydeco music.'
Spend It All 'captures the intense bravado and vitality of Creole life in scenes such as quarter horse racing, coffee roasting, accordion building, cooking and eating supper along with the intoxicating music of the Balfa Brothers, Marc Savoy, Nathan Abshire and others.'
