New Orleans filmmaker Rebecca Snedeker explores the insular world of elite white Carnival societies and debutante balls in By Invitation Only. Questioning their racial exclusivity, she takes an unprecedented insider’s look at the pageantry and asks: what does it mean to be the queen of the masked men in a krewe? As she examines her own place in an alluring tradition, Snedeker challenges viewers to reflect on the roles we all play in our lives. (2006 | Not rated | 56 minutes)
