screening to coincide with the two year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina

"Riveting . . . It's hard to overstate the impact of KAMP KATRINA's honesty; fresh off their acclaimed venture Mardi Gras: Made in China, the filmmakers' six-month survey arguably captured the city's wounded spirit more frankly than any of its contemporaries. The result is a disturbing yet essential record."
- S.T. VanAirsdale, THE REELER

"You settle in with these people and become immersed in the chaos, brutality and surreal humor of their situation, seen close-up and often in fragments. This isn't the heartening experience of [Jonathan] Demme's film, nor is it a comprehensive picture like [Spike] Lee's - but it seems appropriate enough to a war of attrition."
- Stuart Klawans, THE NATION

"Fascinating . . . Achieve[s] potent dramatic and emotional impact...Artful, beautiful visual flourishes."
- Joe Leydon, VARIETY

"Transfixing . . . haunting and colorful."

from the directors of MARDI GRAS: MADE IN CHINA

KAMP KATRINA follows New Orleans native Ms. Pearl, who spontaneously converts her backyard into a tent-village for 14 displaced people for six months in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent flooding of her beloved city. Ms. Pearl explodes off the screen, one of those flamboyantly larger-than-life personalities who, were this a fictional film, would seem too outrageous to be real. KAMP KATRINA delivers a sometimes-shattering verité exploration of the very personal daily struggles imposed by this national tragedy on a small group of troubled survivors.
