|Continuing impacts of Katrina on the people of New Orleans.|
SAINTS RISING (Hailima Yates, United States, 2008; 45 min.) The documentary presents the voices of New Orleans years after Hurricane Katrina and the breech of the levees. From children to volunteers, they discuss the troubles that were left behind after the waters resided: the violent and militarized response, the housing crisis, homeless situation, difficulties in obtaining financial assistance/relief funds, what happened to the money, how the youth have been mentally affected, and the grassroots movement to rebuild the city and their lives.
