Big Apple, Big Easy Film Exchange: Glory at Sea! & Your Neighbors Steps
Big Apple, Big Easy Film Exchange: Glory at Sea! & Your Neighbors Steps
Presented by DCTV & Charitable Film Network
Friday, July 25th @ 7:30PM

Glory at Sea!
Directed by Behn Zeitlin
Glory at Sea! is the first film project that moves past documenting the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, and towards understanding it through the powerful language of storytelling. Glory at Sea! is a short-film about love, loss, and hope cast and shot on the streets of NOLA, and built from the rubble that still blankets its every corner. Using local actors and a local crew, it is a film that through its making will lay the groundwork for lasting independent cinema to exist in a city that desperately needs to tell its stories. This is a place where people without houses have managed to hold onto their voices, their trombones, and above all the spirit that makes it an irreplaceable reservoir of American culture. Glory at Sea! is a shout in its honor. (TRT: 23 Min)

Your Neighbors Steps
Directed by Naftali Beane Rutter
Your Neighbor's Steps is a short documentary about two young guys from Brooklyn who joined forces with ART IN ACTION (a collaborative public art project based in New Orleans that creates site specific art in devastated environments) to try to make a pair of "portals" connecting Brooklyn and New Orleans.  Did they succeed? Did they fail? Find out when you take a seat on Your Neighbor's Steps.

ALSO SCREENING:

New Orleans For Sale
By 2 Cent Entertainment  
This award winning PSA has gained national recognition for placing a spotlight on the slow pace of rebuilding the City of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and the levee breaches.  Awards include: NAACP Award, PBS POV Series Award, AFI SILVERDOCS Award, and the Film your Issue Jury Award

Home
Directed by Matt Faust
Home depicts personal family memories taking place in pre-Katrina settings and contrasts them with the post-Katrina version of the same settings.  The central theme is the essence of home and the feeling of loss that occurs when home becomes a memory.  Home conveys this theme in a way that detached observers of Hurricane Katrina can relate to and gain a deeper understanding of the rows of empty and demolished houses than what can be gained through forensic analysis.  (TRT: 6 Min)

The Bricks
By Luisa Dantas and JoLu Productions, Inc.
This short film was made for the "Stop the Demolition Coalition" before the December 20, 2007 New Orleans City Council vote on the demolition of the city's public housing developments.

Following the screening there will be a talkback with DCTV & CFN representatives.
