Video from the Treme panel at Rising Tide 5
At long last, the videos from the Rising Tide Treme panel have been put up. Part One is above.
Many thanks to Crystal at Sophielab for these and the rest of the RT video.
I encourage you to watch the discussion, particularly if you are a fan of the show. At the time, Maitri and I both felt the panel was a bit on the low key side of the spectrum but on rewatching, I am impressed at how much ground got covered.
As with the dialogue at Back of Town, the panel discussion and audience questions highlighted tension between the expectations and analyses of Treme as a work of creative fiction and Treme as definitive exegesis of post-K life in the city. For me, this continues to be the most interesting as well as most frustrating aspect of Treme. I was impressed seeing how gracefully Overmeyer in particular handles being told (and surely this happens all the time) what needs be included in his production.
