The Guardians of the Flame at once represent, celebrate, embrace, challenge and transform the traditional expression of the deeply-rooted African culture of the North American quadrant of the Caribbean. In this outstanding documentary, Cherice Harrison Nelson, Queen of the Guardians of the Flame, decuments the special niche that the Guardians have carved out for themselves. This documentary gives us a privileged glimpse into the way tradition constructs and transforms itself and shows how three generations of the Harrison family have joined the Mardi Gras Indian tradition.
Features: Big Chief Donald Harrison Sr., Big chief Donald Harrison Jr., Herreast J. Harrison, Christian Scott, Luther Gray and more.
