Storyline

A diverse group of New Orleans artists and musicians struggle to find meaning in their lives, work, and relationships one year after Katrina. A nuanced view of the city and its people, it shows the changing landscape of New Orleans as it has never been seen before, dispelling the stereotypes of Bourbon Street and Twenties' jazz to reveal the tragic, defiant, joyful city many call 'the Soul of America.'

A unique valentine to post-Katrina NOLA
8 September 2011 | by JillpixSee all my reviews

A huge thank you to the filmmaking team, director/actor Joseph Meissner and writer Helen Krieger, for giving us this post-Katrina tale that's free of cliché; instead, the filmmakers let us simply enter this very specific world of New Orleans and live it for a while.

It's a rare experience for me to come away from a film and feel like I've truly been there...with those people...in those streets...in those houses. NOLA residents and Katrina survivors Meissner and Krieger have created a unique valentine to a city they clearly love, and their insider status gives the film an authenticity that only locals could provide. The specifics of post-Katrina life (no daily papers available, when will mail delivery resume?) are things outsiders (myself included!) probably didn't think about once the crisis was over. The handling of such details is masterful and the ensemble of performances is top-notch. Special shout outs to Joseph Meissner whose quiet intensity is absolutely mesmerizing, and to Becky Stark whose quirky energy and infectious laugh add just the right touch.

The film is based on Krieger's collection of short stories,"In The Land of What Now," and I, for one, can't wait to read them!
