Hot Docs Cinema is now presenting the virtual theatre release of the new documentary Up From the Streets, a “joyous portrait” of the New Orleans music scene.

Viewers can purchase tickets to watch the film at home via, one of several local, independent theatres across the continent that are participating in the virtual screenings.

For every ticket sold, $2 will be donated to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation’s COVID-19 relief fund for musicians.

Up From the Streets was produced and directed by Michael Murphy and is hosted by Oscar-nominated and six-time Grammy-winning jazz trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard.
