Mobilian Margaret Brown's documentary "The Order of Myths," about the racially divided Mardi Gras celebrations in her hometown, ended with a standing ovation from a majority of the 1,762 patrons who attended the film's Saenger Theatre premiere Thursday night.

The film had been billed as "controversial," and some did not applaud.

Mobilians who are featured in the documentary said beforehand that they felt anxiety about the film's reception at its hometown premiere.
