Tribeca reviews: "Burning Cane"

 

BURNINGCANE_(PHILLIP_YOUMANS)_1__0.jpg

Get your blues on down South with the youngest filmmaker at Tribeca Film Festival 2019! 

Phillip Youmans is a filmmaker from New Orleans, Louisiana.  In his last two years in high school, Phillip began writing, directing, shooting, and editing, his first feature, "Burning Cane." "Burning Cane," stars Wendell Pierce from "The Wire" and was executively produced  by Benh Zeitlin from "Beasts of the Southern Wild."  Inspired by blues singers, Robert Johnson, and Lightnin' Hopkins, and his Southern Baptist upbringing, Phillip Youmans feels that "the only thing arguably more soulful than Robert Johnson is Sunday morning gospel."

In "Burning Cane," a Black Protestant preacher in rural Southeastern Louisiana turns to the bottle after losing his wife, while a churchgoing mother looks after her sick dog, and unemployed son and grandson, who also have begun to abuse alcohol.  The film takes an up-close, transparent, point blank-range look into the homes and lives of its characters, really leaving the viewer with the impression of what it must be like to struggle with loss, depression, substance abuse, and lack of opportunity in a deeply-rooted religious, righteous community.  Beautiful camera angles and shots from a director with a long future ahead of him.

All the best.
