Projects

Projects in Curating :

For three years I collected locally-made short films about Hurricane Katrina, the ensuing federal flood of 2005 and our recovery process. These films screened as a collection in the New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival in ’06, ’07, and ’08. Occasionally non-locals screened work that they produced here, such as the Yes Men. (Here’s a transcript of their "identity correction" at a disaster contrating conference in New Orleans.) Don’t miss the New Orleans segment in their new movie.

Many thanks to the supporters who have screened films from these series, including Hallwalls, Cinevic, 911 Media, and many others.

Back and Forth 2007

Local work spanning 1985 -2007, organized with an awareness of the see-saw effect on our city – our constant mindfulness of "before and after," "then and now," pre- and post- Hurricane Katrina, the levee breaks and flooding of 80% of New Orleans.
