In the middle of a muddy field, blanketed by fog, an annual Mardi Gras celebration in rural Louisiana takes place. “Rougarouing” is the Cajun term for “dangerous carousing.” Striking black and white cinematography enhanced with bold splashes of color captures folks as they don strange masks and dress like medieval carnival jesters, readying themselves to partake in the music, madness, whiskey, whips, and gumbo.
