Greetings to mankind! The five-note sequence of Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) is performed outdoors by New Orleans musicians at sites in their city loaded with memories. The playful interpretations of this iconic motif are a testament to the city’s free spirit, despite its unstable present and uncertain future.
