“Follow Me Down: Portraits of Louisiana Prison Musicians” is a feature-length documentary. Shot over the course of two years in three Louisiana Prisons. Ethnomusicologist, Ben Harbert weaves together interviews and performances of extraordinary inmate musicians-some serving life sentences, some new commits, and others soon to be released. The film offers an unexpected look at prison life, pushing viewers to reach their own conclusions about music, redemption, and the humanity in us all.

EVERY PENNY of the proceeds will go towards the NOLA TO ANGOLA fundraiser! www.facebook.com/nolatoangola. Nola to Angola is a long-distance bicycle fundraiser taking place in October to raise money for the Cornerstone Builder’s Bus Project. This organization provides a free monthly bus service for New Orleanians who have loved ones in Louisiana State Penitentiary (Angola), Dixon Correctional Institute, Avoyelles Correctional Center, and Rayburn Correctional Center. At least once a month the bus project rents a 55 passenger bus to provide a ride so those who might not otherwise have the ability to make the trek to these facilities, can visit loved ones.
