A young vocalist returns to New Orleans, but can't find her way around. We see the city through her attempts at making contact and friends, earning money and playing her music.
Cover Me is a remarkable film - part of a bigger project Garrett Bradley developed with artist Tameka Norris, who plays the lead. Based on 30 hours of material, Norris created a video installation in which she put herself in as many roles and situations as possible and Bradley created this modest, exceptional film that details the story of the fictional vocalist. And in working with the same footage, what in effect defines the moving image as either film or art? Image and sound play an important role in the alienation that occurs. New Orleans excels in its diversity.
