A compelling feature-length documentary about nineteen children from different neighborhoods of New Orleans. 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, play and art. We see several of their drawings animated, magically bringing their interior universe to life. 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’ indomitable spirit.

Directed by Laura Belsey.
