Posted By on Fri, Mar 27, 2009 at 7:22 PM

Crips and Bloods: Made in America is one of many stellar films in the Patois New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival that runs through next week. Crips and Bloods screens at Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center at 7 p.m. Sunday. Besides documentaries, there are feature films like Medicine for Melancholy (7 p.m. Saturday at Zeitgeist), a great debut from director Barry Jenkins. A full list of films and links to Web sites and trailers is available on the film fest Web site. Films address topics issues of race, incarceration, AIDS, Hurricane Katrina, Cajun music and Middle Eastern politics and much more. For Gambit reviews of some of these films, go here.
