TREME: the complete first season

HBO's Treme is an outstanding new series set in New Orleans beginning three months after Hurricane Katrina.  The show interweaves music, food, and several storylines of people struggling to rebuild their lives after the storm. "Treme" refers to one of the earliest neighborhoods, which early in the city's history was the main neighborhood for free people of color.  Treme remains famous for its music and culture. 

An excellent tie-in that is coming soon to the library collection is Spike Lee's documentary, If God is Willing and Da Creek Don't Rise.  Lee revisits New Orleans five years after his magesterial When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts.  Check out all these DVDs at your Flathead County Library!
