Music and EntertainmentTHE KINGDOM OF ZYDECO

Shortly after the deaths of zydeco royals Clifton Chenier and Rockin’ Dopsie, this 71-minute film examined the Southwest Louisiana zydeco scene, with special focus on the battle between zydeco pioneer Boozoo Chavis and newcomer Beau Jocque to be declared the new “king of zydeco.” Additional segments feature zydeco artists John Delafose and Nathan Williams. Newly remastered. “A cunning little comedy of manners and a sweet-tempered celebration of American roots music. [Jocque and Chavis] kick out the jams in thrilling performances filmed with blissful authority by Mugge.” - Gene Seymour, New York Newsday
