A true New Orleans character ...almost anyone who lives in New Orleans has heard of "The Okra Man" - in fact, most have heard him in the early morning chanting his way through the neighbourhood; "I got cucumbers, I got watermelon, I got fresh peaches..." and probably have bought fresh fruit and vegetables from him.
Mr. Okra, (aka Arthur Robinson) the itinerant New Orleans produce vendor, is the subject and name of a new documentary film from executive producer Andre Jones and director T.G. Herrington of Nom de Guerre Films http://nomdeguerre.tv/.
"Beyond the clich├ęs of Bourbon Street, amid the decadence and decay of one of Americas most unique cities, Mr. Okra is a character from another time. His is an analog world, in a digital age.
This is an intimate look at one of New Orleans most colorful characters, one of the characters that makes New Orleans such a special place Mr. Okra is a glimpse into the soul of an American city."
