Floating skeletons

. May 22, 2012.

This country has a lot of skeletons in its closet — some surface, others stay buried. After disregarding the astonishing — and disturbing — history of the Big Easy’s oldest black neighborhood, the documentary Faubourg Treme: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans follows a filmmakers journey of trying to uncover the past and make way for a fair future. The film is always powerful, but in many different ways — sometimes it’s sad, at others hopeful, and it’s certainly infuriating. At the core are resilient people, people who been cheated and held down, people who need to be treated fairly. Part of UMS on Film series. University of Michigan Museum of Art, Helmut Stern Auditorium, 525 S. State St. 734-764-0395.
