Eye on the storm, Katrina and New Orleans: "First person accounts [of Hurricane Katrina], beginning from the day [it] barreled its way into the lives and hearts of New Orleans' residents through their struggles to make sense of the aftermath. A stunning video diary that goes way beyond the television accounts at the time to become a historical artifact of disaster"--Container.
Still standing: "A filmmaker comforts her Columbian grandmother as they examine the wreckage of her home in Waveland, Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina ... The vulnerability of the foreign and the elderly is poignantly revealed, as well as this grandmother's surprisingly indomitable spirit"--Container.
New Orleans furlough: "A member of the National Guard returns from Iraq and sees in New Orleans' devastation a new mission ... His personal demons create another and unique havoc, making him as dysfunctional as our own government was in coping with the tragedy"--Container.
After Katrina, rebuilding St. Bernard Parish: "A sensitive elegy to a working-class community's destroyed neighborhood and its passionate commitment to rebuild. Rather than sweeping statements of catastrophe, we are offered intimate views of the nitty-gritty challenges that confront its residents"--Container.
