GRAND FUGUE ON THE ART OF GUMBO studies 'the baroque complexity of the South' through the musings of Mobile, AL native Eugene Walter, author, actor, artist, creator and chef. Using Walter's own radio broadcasts as narration, the film takes a peek at the simple ingredients that make up the Gulf Coast and its signature cuisine, gumbo, and shows how their staggered repetition builds something wholly unique and intricately beautiful.
