We just received this great first review of True Family before the showing at this years New Orleans Film Festival on October 15th.
Before watching “True Family”, I had never heard of Meschiya (I ought to be shot). I knew of bands like Tuba Skinny (who were nice enough to let me use their music for my #TeamNOLAFilm podcast), but that was about it. Knowing what I know now, I’m hit with a wave of sadness that there was a whole musical community in the area that I was unaware of – This was followed by absolute happiness when I discovered her album on Spotify. But what really impresses me here is how, through this singer, we are given a novel glimpse of a thriving young creative crew.
