Krewe of Cleopatra

It seems like yesterday two sisters saw in their dreams a vision of Mardi Gras, with the beauty and grace that could only be captured in an all women's carnival organization. Thus, was this krewe born. A symbol was chosen for the power, dignity and beauty of a women's krewe... The ageless splendor of Egypt's mighty ruler... Cleopatra! In 2013, fter 39 years of parading on the Westbank, the Krewe of Cleopatra moved her procession to Uptown New Orleans along the traditional St. Charles route.

The New Orleans City Council voted on Thursday allowing the ladies Krewe from the Westbank to move their parade to the traditional New Orleans Uptown route. The Krewe of Cleopatra will kick off the Carnival Season on January 25, 2013, the first Friday of Mardi Gras. Captain Dolores Kepner says, “This is the perfect year for us to move our parade to the New Orleans uptown route. It opens up tremendous possibilities for the first weekend of Mardi Gras.

About the DVD
The first Mardi Gras in America was celebrated in Mobile, Alabama in 1703. In 2007, it is still racially segregated. Filmmaker Margaret Brown (Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt), herself a daughter of Mobile, escorts us into the parallel hearts of the city s two carnivals. With unprecedented access, she traces the exotic world of secret mystic societies and centuries-old traditions and pageantry; diamond-encrusted crowns, voluminous, hand-sewn gowns, surreal masks and enormous paper mache floats. Against this opulent backdrop, she uncovers a tangled web of historical violence and power dynamics, elusive forces that keep this hallowed tradition organized along enduring color lines.
