The 2016 Louisiana International Film Festival will be held April 13-17 at the Cinemark Perkins Rowe theater in Baton Rouge. A very strong lineup of 39 domestic, foreign and regional feature films will be presented. Highlights include Lo And Behold, Reveries of the Connected World, famously tech-phobic director Werner Herzog's examination of the internet's impact on humanity; Dheepan, a French film about an immigrant struggling to gain passage to France that won the Palme d'Or at last year's Cannes Film Festival; Bogalusa Charm, a documentary about a charm school for young ladies in Bogalusa, Louisiana; and Sidemen: Long Road to Glory, a documentary about piano player Pinetop Perkins, drummer and vocalist Willie "Big Eyes" Smith and guitarist Hubert Sumlin, all of whom served as sidemen to both Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters. The full lineup of films is available here.
