Kamp Katrina, a vérité documentary set in post-Katrina New Orleans, follows Ms. Pearl and her husband, both Upper Ninth Ward residents, over the course of six months. During this time, their yard is transformed into a tent community for people who have lost their homes. Confronted with limited resources and no governmental support, the couple attempts to create a support network for the residents of Kamp Katrina while they employ the boarders to rebuild homes and businesses destroyed by the storm. The makeshift community struggles to survive the personal problems and issues brought about by their hopeless situation. The filmmakers will introduce the screening.

Organized by Sally Berger, Assistant Curator, Department of Film.

Presented in collaboration with Two Boots Pioneer Theater.
