Environmental Film Festival: Katrina’s Children

March 18, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Washington, D.C. premieres Katrina's Children (2008, 83 min.) at National Museum of Women in the Arts, a feature-length documentary about nineteen children from different neighborhoods in New Orleans at. Told entirely from the children's point of view, the film explores the impact of Hurricane Katrina on their lives. We enter their world through their stories, their play, and their art, which has been animated for the film, magically bringing to life their interior universe. Aching with sadness, yet grounded in hope, Katrina's Children is ultimately a celebration of children's extraordinary resilience and a tribute to New Orleans' unique and indomitable spirit. Director Laura Belsey will participate in a post-screening discussion. For a full schedule of Environmental Film Festival screenings, please visit www.dcenvironmentalfilmfest.org

Members, seniors, students $4; General $5. Reservations required: email reservations[at]nmwa[dot]org or call 202-783-7370
