The Embassy New Orleans
Boys die young in New Orleans, caught in a cycle of honour and revenge. At funerals pastors scream, “The killin’ has got to end!”
Inside Ace’s Car Wash & Sweet Shop, The Embassy trades cash for guns while the neighborhood lays tracks at Gun Metal Records- a free recording studio where the community collaborates with celebrity rappers.
The Embassy opens with a street party featuring a ceremony, Public Practice, by Delaney Martin + Claire Tancons, an opera singer, a custom car show, performances by local rappers, a pillow fight, blacksmiths destroying guns and hot plates by neighborhood ladies..
